    slow internet? 1/10 the speed of windows?

    This problem really has me stumped. I have been using the same wireless card since breezy 5.10 beta. My internet is painfully slow with 8.04. My wireless card is a ralink shipset. Does any one have any idea what would cause this? these tests were done on the same machine connected to the same network. I also connected to the same host to run the test.

    this is a bug and its a beast for an lts.

    try this:
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M
    wlan0 is the name of your wireless interface. Yours might be different.
