I am on Intel Wireless 4965 with slow internet ... I tried disabling IPv6 didnt do anything significant. I am wondering how can I update my wireless drivers to those on here. I get a .ucode file. After some searching, I find that I should put it in /lib/firmware then run sudo modprobe iwl4965? something like that? I get no errors nor success messages. How can I verify I am using that driver? I also noticed that if I do

jiewmeng@jiewmeng:~$ sudo modprobe iwl <tab><tab>
iwl3945  iwlagn   iwlcore  

No iwl4945 there?

jieweng... you are not having much luck! There is an existing thread here on the ubuntuforums. No solution on that thread though. ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1741728 –  fossfreedom May 21 '11 at 14:53
