Really slow wireless download - Constant upload speed

Postby s_gig » Wed Dec 05, 2012 10:12 pm

I'm using mint 14 (32 bits) and my wireless download speed is extremely slow but the wired speed is the same as with my other computers (about 20 times faster). The weirdest part is that the upload speed does not change wether I'm using wireless or wired.

Here is a listing of my hardware:

Thank you for any advice, I've been searching for a while about this problem, tried many things but nothing seems to work for the moment.
