Wireless N Card - Wireless G Speed

Postby RebIra on Fri Mar 29, 2013 3:30 pm

I recently upgraded my service with my provider and should be getting 60mbs Download speeds. My wife's laptop running Vista is receiving in the 60's both wireless and hardwired. We both have the same laptops with the same N cards installed.

However, my laptop running Mint 13 is only getting in the 20's Download wireless, and 60's download when hardwired.

As I am fairly new to Linux, I was wondering if there is something that could be blocking the speed, or if somehow Linux is only recognizing this as a G card and not an N card. It makes no sense that 2 laptops, with the same networking cards, in the same room, the same distance from the Modem/Router, would be getting 2 completely different speeds.

Can someone help?

* V. querying DHCP...
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service smbd reload

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the reload(8) utility, e.g. reload smbd
