Slow internet connection on multiple linux distros but fast connection on windows

  • Less than 1 mb/s download speed
  • Frequent disconnections from the network forcing me to re-connect to it
  • Random fluctuations in speed from 45/kbs up to 600/kbs
  • Solid constant network speed of 50/mbs on windows

Troubleshooting methods already tried:
  • Restarting router
  • Trying two different network adapters(Currently using the faster adapter Tp-Link TL-WN822N)
  • Trying both linux mint and ubuntu
  • Disabling power management for each network adapter
  • Disabling IPv6
  • Updating network drivers

If anyone can help me troubleshoot this, I would really appreciate this!
