Just installed Ubuntu 13.04 on my Toshiba R840 laptop together with Windows 7. Installation was a breeze. Everything works fine. Checked the speed on Surprisingly my ethernet upload speed is about 4 times slower than the same test done on my Windows 7 and wireless on Ubuntu. When I take it off the ethernet in Ubuntu and use the wireless, wireless has a perfect speedtest.

Here are the results All to the same test server:

Windows 7 Ethernet - Up 83.11/Down 39.21
Ubuntu Wifi - Up 82.37/Down 39.01
Ubuntu Ethernet - Up 83.07/Down 9.02
