Fitted an Addon AWP1200E 5Ghz WiFi card today which depends on Linux drivers from files in /drivers/linux/AWP1200E_linux.zip/RTL8812AE_Linux_v4.3.2_12208.20140904/ extracted from http://www.addon-tech.com/new_/down/upload/20150812/1439396363.zip .
On my 74mb connection I only get about 37 mb/sec; hardwired I get about 67 mb/sec and on my Windows PC I used to get over 70mb/sec with WiFi.
Why is it slower on Ubuntu? How can I get this card to deliver the speed I got with Windows? Here's what
