Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have installed Ubuntu 11.10 from a disk bought from your store and run it alongside Windows 7 on my Lenova 3000 N100 laptop. Due to the extreme slowness of the wi-fi it is virtually unusable as the main reason I wanted to run Ubuntu is to speed up the time required to enter the internet. I have used 3 or 4 earlier versions of Ubuntu and have never experienced this problem before. I had seriously considered removing Windows and running Linux in total but I find myself wondering whether to delete Ubuntu and carry on with windows instead. Can you help?

The hardware I believe is as follows thanks:
