Slow and erratic wifi

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – My wifi seems to be very slow on Fedora 17 64-bit (Ubuntu as well). I have a 512kbps connection (which is already quite slow) but it takes forever for webpages to load. In many cases it isn't able to open websites at all. Chrome, for example, says Resolving Host and then gives up. I use a wifi dongle and it seems to work out of the box. It's a DLink DWA-125 which uses the Ralink RT3070 chip. Here is the output of lsusb: Code: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 07d1:3c16 D-Link System DWA-125 Wireless N 150 Adapter(rev.A2) [Ralink RT3070] The card is supported by the kernel so I haven't install (HowTos)
