I understand that this question has been done a lot, but I'm asking because i still haven't found a solution.

I have and Asus x200ma-ub01t that dual boots Windows 10(technical preview) and Ubuntu 14.04.2. Everything works fine and performance is superb, but i have one problem in Ubuntu that is bugging me. The wifi in Ubuntu is extremely slow compared to windows. I have looked through count less posts dealing with the same problem but have not found a solution. However, i am open to any and all suggestions. If you need the output of any command (I bet you will) just ask :) thanks in advance!

  • Go to http://speedtest.net and run a speed test. Run on both Windows and Ubuntu using the same server. Then put the results in the question/comment. – user371765 Feb 26 '15 at 5:35
  • I ran speedtest in windows 10 and got 32 mbps down and 5 mbps up. In ubuntu, got less than 1 mbps down and about 1 mbps up. :( – Lucas S Feb 27 '15 at 5:55
  • Which WiFi-chip is build in into this box? – frlan Mar 3 '15 at 6:17
  • the wifi chip is a realtek rtl8188ee and the driver is r8169 – Lucas S Mar 4 '15 at 23:33
  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A2 terminal command. – Pilot6 Jul 28 '15 at 16:56

I also use X200MA, and I tried this "IPv6 off" method.

A little more speed up of X200MA Wifi.

  • Thanks for the suggestion, and it did help a little bit. Im pretty surprised that the chip in this laptop doesnt work well with linux, but it should be solved eventually. – Lucas S Mar 19 '15 at 0:32

Well, it was a last resort but i did it. I decided to use and external usb adapter to speed up the wifi, and it worked! My wifi is at a good speed, although it was unfortunate it came to this. Oh well, i personally believe that graphics and wifi drivers (as well as drivers in general) is that ubuntu really struggles with, and i hope it gets the compatibility and support that windows does.


New solution !

Use new Linux kernel 4.1 ! Getting much effective for my X200MA !


It seems that New kernel updates for BayTrails' suspend process, so Wifi driver and other functions are well activating after resume from suspend, I thought.
