I have >120mb BB connection, via wifi on windows i get around 90+mb connection.

I have an Asus RT-N66U Dark Night router, like i said on all other devices i have no issue. But using ubuntu 12.10 on my ultrabook i'm lucky if i get +10mb and the connection is very temperamental.

Even simple actions like updating take an age to do via wifi.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Can you run this command and put the result? sudo lshw -class network

Also, what computer are you using?

I just gave in and went back to 12.04 which worked, i'll leave updating until a new LTS is released. – BB1873 Nov 29 '12 at 9:37
