Slower wireless link rate / speed in Ubuntu vs Windows XP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 25, 2013
On the same system with the same wireless adapter (Intel 5100) in Windows I see up to 300Mbps link rate reported, while in Ubuntu I see a maximum of 150Mbps. Same system, same wireless adapter, same network access point, same location. The only difference is Windows vs Ubuntu.
I'm using the iwlwifi drivers.
The access point is on the 2.4Mhz band with 2T2R, and 40Mhz channel width.
Why is there a difference between Windows and Ubuntu in the link rate, and what can I do to get full use of the wireless adapter in Ubuntu?
Separately, I upgraded a different system (System2) to Ubuntu 13.04, and while that system was getting the 150Mbps max link rate in Ubuntu previously, with 13.04 it only gets about half of that! So, now my System2 only reports a link rate around 65-72Mbps after the upgrade. Why?
Kubuntu and wireless
location: linux.com - date: October 7, 2009
I am 100% new to linux, and I have a live CD for Kubuntu 9.04. My computer is a compaq presario v500 laptops and runs windows xp (for now at least). My laptop has a built in wireless ability which works fine in windows, but I cannot get it to turn on in linux (I have tried knoppix and kubuntu). What do I have to do to enable my wireless so I can access the internet in kubuntu? Please write any responses is idiot terms, because this is the first day I have evere tried using any linux program, so I know little to nothing about how to configure ANYTHING. Thanks in advance!
Wireless Help PLEASE! (ubuntu 11.04)
location: linux.com - date: August 14, 2011
So i recently converted to a dual boot of Linux and Windows, and i was really digging the interface and feature of Linux Ubuntu. The only reason stopping me from using Ubuntu all the time is the wireless not working! I have a compaq presario v2000 laptop which needs the 'Broadcom 802.11 WLAN driver for the wifi to function.
I've tried various methods of installing the driver to no avail; HELP PLEASE!!
Ubuntu 10.10 vs. RHEL 6 for wireless cracking ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 27, 2011
I'm in the process of building a Linux server using spare desktop (HP dc 7700p PC with USB wireless adapter) and of course it will be used as the wireless security training exercise so I just wondering if Ubuntu or RHEL is suitable for me to learn ?
BackTrack Linux is too hard to use and doesn't automatically detect the USB wireless network card usually.

Howto bridge wireless and wired network interfaces?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 2, 2005
First of all I hope this topic was not covered already elsewhere, but I couldn't find a solution with searching Google and Linuxquestions.org. I also want the debian way via /etc/network/interfaces for my new setup.
The following setup is working without any problems and is faily easy to setup. My Laptop is connected to the university network via wired ethernet eth0 and gets an public IP address from the university DHCP server:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
name Ethernet LAN card
The wireless network eth1 is setup as an ad-hoc network with an private IP address and another DHCP server running on my linux box assigns a private IP address to any computer which connects to my ad-hoc network (primarily for surfing the internet from the kitchen, which has no network socket). The package ipmasq does network address translation (NAT) for the wireless host connected to the ad-hoc network.
iface eth1 inet static
name Wireless LAN card
[SOLVED] Wireless became disabled how do I enable?

I have been using ubuntu 10.10 (running on a Dell Inspiron N4010) for a couple months and love it but the wireless just recently stopped working and I can't figure out how to re-enable it. I've searched endlessly the FAQ's, forums, etc but nothing seems to work.

My PC is connected directly to the cable modem. I would like to use my PC's WiFi card to share my internet connection with my Android phone and laptop so I can avoid buying a wireless router.
Wireless: Kubuntu vs Ubuntu vs Xubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 25, 2009
I happily use Kubuntu 9.04 on my desktop with a wired-internet connection.
I tried the livecd of Kubuntu 9.04 on my Compaq Presario laptop but could not connect to my own secured home network (WEP). But the livecd of Ubuntu 9.04 and Xubuntu 9.04 had no wireless issues.
Right now, I am using the Mandriva 2009.1 KDE on my laptop and wireless works perfectly with a very strong signal (stronger than Ubuntu's)but still I want to switch to Kubuntu 9.04.
I've read about the topic regarding Kubuntu 9.04 wireless issues... and many suggest installing WICD. If this is the solution... why can't WICD be included as default in Kubuntu?
Is the problem only with regards to connecting to secured networks? Or also to unsecured networks? Is this a KDE bug or just with Kubuntu?
The Kubuntu team should study the wireless system of Mandriva... because it simply works out-of-the-box... which the end-users really appreciate.
Any simple fix... besides having to use a wired-connection then ma
Installing Broadcom wireless drivers on Kali Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 31, 2013
Hello I have my drivers in my home folder, but everything I have tried to do has failed on getting them installed. I am not that familiar with Kali, I have used Backtrack 5 r3 for the most part and it already had a wireless manager, so there was nothing to install. I have scanned the web and tried everything i know, if anyone can help me with this I am grateful!
