Just got Ubuntu 13.04 installed last night on my ASUS X45A laptop. I'm having an issue with the Internet dragging or Firefox. I'm not sure what's going on to be honest. I just know that things are dragging on and on and then timing out. However, I have been able to connect to some pages before the session times out, but its not a quick connection. I don't have a hard line available to test right now. The wifi signal strength shows all but one bar "good signal strength". Being new to Linux, I wasn't sure what site I could use to test my connection speed. I tried using my usual SpeedTest.Net site, but I got an error message trying to use it. Any recommendations on sites or apps for Ubuntu? My iPhone sitting right next to the laptop clocked 16 Mbps. So my wifi has plenty of speed for basic browsing. Also the laptop runs just fine with no lag when in Windows-8.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
