So I had been running a (terribly out of date) version of Debian far too long on my laptop and so I decided to check out Mint and installed Linux Mint 12. On wireless my old Debian install could get about 400-500 Kb/sec, however once I installed Mint it dropped to 100 Kb/Sec across every site (and every browser and even through things such as apt-get) with no hardware changes and no other changes (such as distance from the router). The relevant output from lsusb is "Bus 002 Device 003: ID 0bda:8197 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187B Wireless Adapter" Anyone know why installing Mint made my internet go from decent to unusable?

Don't know why you might be having a problem but if it was working fine w/ Debian then you might want to look at LMDE.
