Wireless N network speed doesn't go faster then 54M in Ubuntu with router being rigth next to the computer. I get around 200-220M in Windows.
OS: Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit. router: wireless N router card: wireless N card
I don't use network manager applet, card is configured manually in
mmmm. So - I probably screwed something up:)
auto wlan0 lo iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.10.197 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.10.0 broadcast 192.168.10.255 gateway 192.168.10.1 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.10.194 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.10.0 broadcast 192.168.10.255 gateway 192.168.10.1 wpa-ssid mynet wpa-psk somepassword iface lo inet loopback
sudo iwconfig result:
*lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 Ralink STA ESSID:"mynet" Nickname:"RT2860STA" Mode:Managed Frequency=2.437 GHz Access Point: 00:14:D1:C5:AC:CC Bit Rate=54 Mb/s RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:E7F8-8C84-5026-BFD1-1774-D4F9-0A5D-408A Link Quality=100/100 Signal level:-25 dBm Noise level:-71 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0 vboxnet0 no wireless extensions.*
So Ican't figure out why it doesn't get any faster than 54M. Help
Update mmm. it looks like iwconfig is a legacy utility. This is what I found on the internets:
"iwconfig is a legacy utility. If I were you I'd uninstall it and try to learn to use iw properly. Nothing new will be added through iwconfig any more. Using iwconfig is fine but do not expect to gain new features. iwconfig knows nothing about 802.11n and it will remain that way."
Does any one know how to check throughput propperly in Linux?
