Slow wifi on Linux Mint 18.1 Serena 64bit

Post by danielsan3190 » Sun Mar 12, 2017 1:50 pm

I am very new to linux and so far like just about everything, but my wifi is so slow. I have an ASUS UX360CA. Wireless card is an Intel 8260 (rev 3a). My girlfriend's computer run Windows 10 and has the same wireless card. That being said, I cannot stream videos while she can (we're not trying to do so at the same time). I also got a PAU05 Panda Wireless (RT2870) usb. The driver for this was installed from a ppa I found at http://askubuntu.com/questions/641724/h ... ess-driver. Once again, my girlfriend's wifi out performs min even when I have the Panda usb in. I've updated my kernel and I've tried turning off IPV6. Neither of those have worked. Kernel is 4.4.0-66 generic. For what it's worth, internet is completely fine when ethernet is plugged in via usb-ethernet adapter. I have no clue what I'm doing so if you need other information beyond what's below just let me know. Thanks in advance for your help!

Does your router have both 2.4 and 5 Ghz wireless networks? If so, make sure you're connected to the 5 Ghz. It's worth checking.

My router only has 2.4 ghz. However, when I bring my laptop to work, I generally have to connect to the 2.4 network because it has better signal strength and is faster than the 5 ghz. That being said, I experience similar things at work where other people's wifi is working better than mine. Not sure what their network cards are though.

Seems like there may be minor improvement with this, but it could just be normal variability in wifi connection. It's still under performing compared to my girlfriend's computer. Is this something I can/should try with the Panda USB as well?

Only if it runs on the iwlwifi driver as well, which is unlikely....

See if

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf
Will disable power management after a reboot and speed things up

This seems to have helped some, but I don't think things are yet running at their full capacity. I still need to use the Panda USB to stream videos while my girlfriend's computer does not.

Weird. I have a router with both and while the 2.4Ghz has better signal strength (which is normal depending on how close you are to the router) the 5Ghz is MUCH faster. Though I will be the first to admit that the speed does fluctuate, Speedtest.net just gave me 65 up and 12 down. My 2.4Ghz never gets speeds that high no matter how close the router is.

Yeah, after continuing to use my laptop with all of the suggestions from the thread implemented, nothing seems to be working. My laptop continues to under perform in relation to wifi. I was running Ubuntu on this same laptop before and had the same problem. I also tried Elementary Loki from a usb boot and same issues. Sucks to say, but I may have to reinstall Windows on this unless I can figure out how to make my wifi function with the speed it should.

I do really appreciate all the suggestions from the forum... thanks for your help with this. If you're not sure how to fix it, but have a suggestion on a different Linux OS I may want to try (that's different enough from the ones I've tried and is nice to beginners), please let me know.

It might be an issue with wireless encryption settings on the router. Check to see if it uses WPA2 only(preferred) or some mixed mode with WEP or TKIP

It was on mixed WPA2/WPA. I just switched it to WPA2 only and I'll keep you all posted on any changes. Is there a way that this setting would only be affecting my computer's performance and not my girlfriend's?
