Slow Wifi connection in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric

If your wireless connection is really slow in Ubuntu 11.10 (or in Ubuntu 11.04) this fix can help you.

Opena terminal window and type:

sudo -s
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/ath9k.conf

and add this line:
options ath9k nohwcrypt=1

Restart your system and you should be ok.

Please comment to let me know if this solution worked for you!

  1. Exploring I noticed your web site book-marked
    as: Slow Wifi connection in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric. Now i’m assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if social book-marking gets you a lot of targeted visitors? I’ve been looking at doing some book-marking
    for a few of my websites but wasn’t certain if it would produce any positive results. Thanks.
