Wifi/Msn slow ?

Hi all, I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on my Precario Laptop
I'm connected via WiFi to an Edimax BR6424-N and i cannot login to Msn and browsing is extremly slow as soon as i connect to any other network but myin everythings fine, Ive searched the web alot and found that i should down the mtu in linux so i did, from auto to 1350 and still i keep getting disconencted from msn and briwsing is just extremly slow, Im In the same room as the router so distance is not the issue...
Best regards

Check your iwconfig. I suggest you turn PowerManagement off with:
sudo iwconfig eth0 power off

Of course change eth0 to whatever your connection name is. See if that helps.
