Two days ago I set my computer up to dual-boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04. On windows 7, my download speed averages around 500kb/s, regardless of time of day. On Ubuntu, downloading simple updates from the Software Centre, my average speed is about 15-20kb/s rather than 500-540kb/s which I get on Windows 7. I am on a wireless network. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Also, my father is on Ubuntu 11.04 as well, and his connection speed is no slower than it was before. could that be because he's wired in to the modem itself rather than running wireless? I'm unsure of what to do to bring Ubuntu's speed on my laptop back up from the stone age to where it should be.
