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.
