Ok, after a bit of searching, the problem wasn't in the driver nor ubuntu, but in the router itself. If I understood it correctly, it can emit a 2.4 (b/g) or a 5GHz (a/n) signal, but only the latter is suitable for a 300Mbs connection. I think the algorithm just peek the one more stable, with less noise. The router is boundled with the connection and ...

Mosttimes this works: Find the URL. Then put the URL in command line after a wget. But knowing MicroSoft you need to sign up 1st so a command line method is not possible. And then use something like brasero to burn it to a dvd or use the USB disk creator to install it into an USB.
