I currently installed Ubuntu Linux on a HP laptop, but I found that the update and download speed of
apt-get is extremely slow. I used to have an Ubuntu installed on a Dell laptop with the same Ubuntu edition - 12.04 and the same downloading sources, but the downloading speed is quite good. Why the apt-speeds are so different? May be the Wifi driver is not suitable for this HP laptop?
- replies: Thanks for all your answers;-), it's my first time to know and use this website, I didn't expect to get so many responses so soon.
I'll try this apt-fast when I get home today, to see if it will work good enough.
For Alvar's questions of my network card model, I don't have knowledge of this part, but it's a HP ProBook 4431s, and from HP's website, it says it's Atheros 802.11b/g/n WiFi. And for laptop model, what's this?
Since the old Dell loptop is not at my hand by now, the one thing I remember is that on Dell PC, when I installed it with ubuntu 12.04.1 it don't have wireless card's driver so I installed one latter using some methods I found on the Internet. But for this HP PC, the ubuntu 12.04.1 has direct support of its' wireless card, so I don't need to install a driver manually. I still think the problem might have something to do with the driver.
