Slow wireless connection ?
I just bought an HP Pavilion DM1, a nice little machine halfway between netbook and ultrabook. Windows Seven is already wiped from the disk, and Slackware64 + Xfce is running on it.
Wireless sort of works, but it looks like bandwidth peaks at about half of what it should be. Normally the connection here is 1 Mbit/s, but I only get half of that, according to Conky's status monitor.
The wireless card is a Broadcom BCM4313. I've googled a bit, and this card seems to give quite some headaches. But for ten folks posting about this piece of hardware, there seem to be as many opinions on how to configure that card correctly. Too much information there. Don't know if I'm missing something, though.
