Internet Connection Improvement For Linux Users
Posted August 13, 2012 - 08:06 PM
Here is what you do:
1. Go to Accessories and open up a terminal.
For a wireless connection type in iwconfig and for a wired connection type in ipconfig
Note the adapter name you are using for you internet connection eth0, eth1, wanl0 etc
2. now open another terminal and type in sudo gedit /etc/rc.local
Note: substitue what ever text editor you us in your distro.
a: supply your root pasword Note you will not be able to see it
b: when your editor opens go the the bottom and just before the exit command type in iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M substitute wlan0 for what ever your adapter is.
The end of your file should look something like this:
# By default this script does nothing.
iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M
c: save the file and exit the editor and both terminals.
3: Reboot your computer and then check out how much faster it is. At least mine was.

Hope it works for you too.

No command 'ipconfig' found, did you mean:
Command 'tpconfig' from package 'tpconfig' (universe) - not installed on some Linux OS, to use must install
Command 'iwconfig' from package 'wireless-tools' (main)
Command 'ifconfig' from package 'net-tools' (main) - used for wired connection
ipconfig is used for Windows not Linux or Unix
