I'm using Mint for sometime, I preffer it over Ubuntu. Every update I format and Install the new version. Now I using on my new laptop a MSI CR-420MX (MS-1454), and I felt that using internet is very slow either using Ethernet or Wireless. I saw that that some people is having some troubles with some ralink and realtek cards and changing the driver solves the problems. Is that my case?
Wireless also have the weird behavior where it sometimes it ask twice for the password with two different dialogs: one with the new Gnome 3 interface and the orther with Gnome 2 problably MATE.
My note also has bluetooth but is not detecting, but that I have to check with the warranty.
