I have just installed a fresh copy of 13.04 Desktop today and am having some performance issues with my wireless card.
Running a test on my phone, I get 9 meg download speeds. Currently on my laptop with Ubuntu, I'm getting less than 1 meg. I am almost directly next to the router so no issues with lack of signal - the icon in the top right displays 3 bars out of 4.
lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net outputs the following...
02:00.0 Network controller : Ralink corp. RT5390 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe [1814:5390] Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company U98Z077.00 Half-size Mini PCIe Card [103c:1636] Kernel driver in use: rt2800pci
ifconfig outputs the following...
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 88:9f:fa:95:d1:1a inet addr:192.168.0.5 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:49100 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:37734 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:62009821 (62.0 MB) TX bytes:6558420 (6.5 MB)
I suspect that there is an issue with the
rt2800pci driver that's currently in use. I have no idea how to assign a new driver.
I have disabled ipv6 to no avail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
