    [Ubuntu 9.04] Wireless very slow?


    I have a fresh install of ubuntu 9.04 and i connected to my university campus wireless successfully. I know the internet is working because google page loads, but about 5-6 times slower than if i connected in vista.

    I have an Intel 5100 Wireless wifi link A/G/N. My drivers are iwlagn.

    I read somewhere that this works: sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate 5.5M

    then editing this file: gksudo gedit /etc/rc.local and put iwconfig wlan0 rate 5.5M before exit 0

    Will that work on my card?

    Only one way to find out.

    But it sounds plausable, and you can always undo it later on by removing that line.
