    Red face Wireless slow after updates


    Im new to the forum and linux world so please go easy on me ^^!

    Basically Ive been using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid for a while now on my netbook (samsung NC10) been flawless and fast. After the updates earlier this evening (someone tell me where I can find a log of recent updates? =D) my wireless has been acting up. It's turned painfully slowly when im next to the router and when im further away it barely connects! Even if it does I cant expect a webpage to load either.

    Heres some information that may be of use:

    sudo lspci -v

    Thank you for your help guys!

    Hey guys!

    I just looked through my update history, seems like the kernel isnt to blame. Update manager updated libsoup and libsoup-gnome which caused this problem for me.

    I just downgraded back to the version and the speed & connectivity seems to have come back now.
