    ubuntu 19.10 - rt2800usb slow wifi

    Hi everyone. I've read several related topics here about my rt2800usb driver and slow wifi connections. But i still don't get good results. Best i can get on Ubuntu 19.10 is 10Mbit, on Windows i get 100Mbit.
    I started that wireless-info tool. Here are my settings:

    I hope someone can help me fix my wifi and reduce my headaches
    If i did something wrong or if you need more info, please let me know.

    After several hours of pain I finally did it!

    My mainboard has several usb ports. First I tried one usb 3.1 port on the backside of my computer. 10Mbit. Then I tried the two usb 2 ports and the two usb 3.0 ports on the frontpanel. 10Mbit. After all the configuration possibilities I found on the internet I tried one last usb 3.0 port on the back and it worked! ~80-100Mbit.

    I would really like to know how this could be. Because on every other port the network manager says the wifi rate is nearly perfect with 270-300Mbit.
    It would be great if someone could tell me why there are differences in the usb ports.

    Check your USB trees via

    lsusb -t
    and the stick plugged in the respective slots. You may see how many devices are actively uptaking current from each tree. This might explain it
