I have installed ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop yesterday, everything worked fine except for the wireless, which is very very slow compared to xp on the same machine.
I didnt have this problem when using older versions of ubuntu i.e. (10.04, 10.10, 11.04). I'm using intel AGN 5100 (I think the linux kernel had integrated support for this network card), on a hp presario cq45. Any suggestions on how to make it faster?
