My wifi is slow on Linux Mint 18.3

My wifi card seems to have been playing up recently
Before on my Linux mint 18.3, my wifi card got 30 Mbps but now it says that the signal is >20% and that I am getting 1Mbps! I have tried re-installing rtl8192eu drivers, disabling IPv6 but nothing seems to work!

Sorry, it seems that my linux kernel has stopped working. I think I will move (Sadly) to kubuntu as the amount of crashes on linux mint has just got me fed up. :cry: Hopefully kubuntu will be a better experience.
