Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

I recently installed Linux Mint Daryna. It was able to find my wifi driver but it doesn't work correctly I guess...
Link quality is always 0% according to iwconfig, but the mintwifi applet says 74%. But that's not really the problem...
I'm having a hard time downloading, if I'm lucky I get 50KB/s, wich should be like 1200KB/s (works fine with Pardus linux btw).
I didn't have this problem before, it just started yesterday evening.
I have absolutely no idea where to look or so :-\
Pardus uses the rt61 module, Linux mint (Debian based) uses the rt61pci module, both from serialmonkey.
Does anyone know what it could be ? Or even where to begin my search ?

Thanks !

Since Ubuntu is also Debian based, you might look at this:
