Ubuntu – Why is the download speed slow on Ubuntu 11.10?


Unfortunately I am experiencing slow download speeds on Ubuntu 11.10 but not on Windows Vista. My limited knowledge with Ubuntu and my subsequent flawed research to resolve the matter suggest, it might be a problem with Ath9k.

If you're using wireless it might have something to do with power management. Try this:

sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off 

(where wlan0 is the network interface you use)
