So I have searched high and low and nothing seems to work. I bought this Lenovo p500 IdeaPad, got rid of Windows8 and threw Ubuntu 12.04 on here.
My Centrino Wireless-N 2230 card seems to be giving me trouble. It will be at full speed at times (25MB down / 5.5 MB up) then drop to almost nothing (~2MB down / `0.5MB up) for no reason what so ever. Usually within 5 minutes of rebooting.
I have tried everything out there on the web. I have disabled Wireless N, I have turned off Power Management, I have disabled ipv6, etc etc. Most changes seem to work initially and then not at all. So is there a solution someone may have or help in the matter. It has been a couple years since I have used Linux, so any help with commands and trouble shooting would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some terminal stuff:
