A few days ago I installed Ubuntu 12.10 and am experiencing slow download/upload speeds.
All my other computers connected via wireless are running fine with their normal 30MB/s down and 5MB/s up, but my Ubuntu box just refuses to give me anything more than 10MB/s down and about 1MB/s up as measured by speedtest.net.
Ping fluctuates too: although speedtest.net says it's at 49ms, if you open a term and type in
ping www.google.com the numbers are all over the place.
I've tried adjusting everything from MTU to getting compat-drivers to run on my system and nothing I do seems to help. I've googled just about every HOWTO I could find and tried to follow them all, with no change to the results I'm seeing.
Is there anyway to fix this? I even tried wicd and it did not give me any better results.
