Hello to all,
I am new to LMDE (installed it sunday). I suffered slow download speeds since i set it up, it was fine with other distros i've used. This was tested with LMDE x64, with kernel 3.0 and 2.8xx.
I spent hours finding a solution to this issue, and thought i'd share what i've done here. My laptop is a toshiba satellite A100-307, with a wireless card Pro Intel 3945 abg.
To solve this:
-Go to /etc/modprobe.d/ folder, and open it with administrator rights. Create a file that you will name : iwl3945.conf
-Inside write: options iwl3945 disable_hw_scan=0
-Pull up a terminal and then enter the following commands
sudo modprobe -r iwl3945
sudo modprobe iwl3945
