I have a big problem after installing Ubuntu 11.04 on Asus 1201N netbook:

  • Internet Connection VERY slow. When I am trying to connect to my gmail account I must wait about 3 minutes. And I have 12MB internet connection. Maybe it's https do the problem, but it cann't be so havy...
  • System works very slow even if I switch to Ubuntu Classic interface without compiz effects.

I have this OS on other computer and it works fine (very quick perfomance with maximum graphic effects)

How can I fix my problems? or maybe asus it is a not good pc for linux releases?

thank you

this is what I got after sudo lshw -class network :

can you clarify in your question - have you installed any additional drivers - if so what driver did you install - and is it activated? –  fossfreedom Jul 23 '11 at 22:11
also can you run sudo lshw -class network and copy and paste the results into your question –  fossfreedom Jul 23 '11 at 22:15
Does it happen also if you connect using an ethernet cable? –  Andrea Grandi Aug 10 '11 at 16:45
This question appears to be abandoned and unanswered, could you perhaps add more detail to your question? If this question no longer applies then you can either delete it or answer it yourself if you've solved the problem. Thanks! –  nitstorm Aug 17 '12 at 9:08
