LXer: How To Fix A Slow Wireless Connection With The Intel Pro 5100 ABGN Wireless Adapter in Linux
Published at LXer:
Now that my HP Pavillion DV7-2180US laptop is working again I ran in to a little snafu getting my Intel Pro 5100 ABGN wireless adapter to work in Linux. I tried every Linux distribution in my arsenal – Sabayon, Fedora, Ubuntu, Mageia, Mepis, and others – trying to find one that would work properly with my Intel Pro 5100 ABGN wireless adapter. All of them had the same problem: they would connect, but the connection would be extremely slow. I finally went to Google to try to figure out what was going wrong. There I found that I was not alone. There were several fixes posted but none of them worked right – they either still left me with a slow connection or made my Intel Pro 5100 ABGN wireless adapter unusable.
