    Internet slow with new 12.04 installation

    Lubuntu forum,
    Dell D400 Latitude Windows XP Home 32 bit no PAE support.
    Linksys WRT54G V3.0 DD-WRT firmware.

    Finally got Lubuntu 12.04 installed on my old Dell 400 and can
    successfully dual boot.

    Wireless connection was successful using sudo command to install
    the resident firmware but the connection speed is very, very slow.

    I generally get 12MB download and 10MB upload speeds with windows
    but with Lubuntu I'm getting less that 1GB download and upload.

    With windows Ethernet connection I get 50MB+ download but with
    Lubuntu I get about 20MB.

    Same router and security settings.

    I have the linux driver for my wifi card but don't know how to
    install it.

    Please open a terminal (Ctrl-Alt-T) and post back the outputs of -
    uname -mr
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net

    12.04 is out of support. You will be better off with a fresh install of 14.04, in which the PAE problem is solved:
