I am looking for a standard approach to troubleshooting slow wireless connections, regardless of what card or wireless router you have. Pings to the gw in a simple network less than 10 ft away should yield 1-2ms max.
Not the case here.
What are the first steps anyone would start to troubleshoot this slowness?
Considering I have the best newest laptop and best newest wirelss router in the world, and the top rated best newest wireless card onboard my laptop.
What would you do first?
Please list in this format:
- more stuff...
- ...more yadda stuff
I will not bore you with what I have tried; I have done the basics, but maybe I can learn something new. So I am open for a simple how-to.
I am using amd64 10.04 LTS.
Here is an example ping I am experiencing:
ping 188.8.131.52 PING 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=59.4 ms 64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_seq=2 ttl=56 time=14.3 ms 64 bytes from 126.96.36.199: icmp_seq=3 ttl=56 time=186 ms 64 bytes from 188.8.131.52: icmp_seq=4 ttl=56 time=115 ms ^C --- 184.108.40.206 ping statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3004ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 14.358/93.823/186.334/64.251 ms
its been great hearing 1 response, very cool info, i just added more input to persuade you/those viewing that I have done some basics, to assist in response to my quest for a step by step approach to completion.
as for the "garbled pastes, welp, the interface didnt allow me much room to edit it, ex: when i hit the enter key to create a new paragraph, it took that as i was done. so the input methods defined in this page needs a little more tuning i would suggest.
lastly, i am still experiencing slow speeds/varied speeds. therefore I would like more input, possibly from new individuals, second opinions are always welcomed as there are hundreds of cmd utils i have yet to explore for this issue. i can say it might be the frames in ifconfig possible as culprit and documentation points to drivers, as yes, these are broadcom restricted drivers. any wizards about?
i would like to hear from you all, and wish to use this procedure on help.ubuntu as somepoint giving credit where it is due.
