I am a new Ubuntu user. I installed Ubuntu together with Win 8 on the same machine.
So far, I like Ubuntu system but I detected the wifi speed is very slow. In the speed test, download speed test shows only 1.30 Mbps (It is 8.50 Mbps in Win 8 on the same machine). The real download speed is about 100~200KB/S. I have browsed the forum and tried a lot of methods but cannot fix it.
recently I get a very weird problem from my Ubuntu Server 1204 LTS
1. the write speed can reach 500MB/s when there is no other
2. the write speed down to around 10MB/s when there are many other
processes and meanwhile:
The OpenOffice team have made version 3.2 of the open source office suite for Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Solaris available to download. It offers numerous enhancements over its predecessor which offer both stability and speed benefits.
I am unclear how does the torrent download affects the speed test. I am on a 5 Mbps line, When I download my torrent file at the speed of 300KB/s ( big B), then the speed test speed (www.speedtest.net)drops to 2.5Mbps ( small b).
