I'm getting terrible internet speeds on my computer running Ubuntu 14.04 with a Broadcom BCM4318 wireless card. I have 20 mb/s internet and when I run a speed test, I'm not even getting 1 mb/s. I run Speedtest from my phone while I'm at my desk and get close to 20 mb/s. I have similar results from a Windows laptop and a Windows PC, both just under 20 mb/s.
I have a problem with laptop fan, which is verry annoying in silent room. On Ubuntu 9.04 amd64 first the fan starts quiet, but after a few minutes it gets higher speed and keeps that speed, even if the computer doesn't need it.
On Windows XP OS the fan sometimes start's going faster, but then it slow down again, on Ubuntu - never.

I recently purchased an iRiver P7 media player which I am using with Rhythmbox under Ubuntu 9.04. The transfer speed when uploading files to the player is phenomenally slow - the first 50 or so MB reported virtually instantly then the speed immediately drops to about 12-15KB/sec yes KB/sec so a 3-400MB video file takes hours to transfer to the player.
Hey great community, I need your help with understanding why my internet speed (especially the download speed) is so slow on my Ubuntu machine. check this speed differences between my Windows and Ubuntu machines:
I'm not able to receive a download speed of more than 56 KB/s using Ubuntu Release 12.04 (precise) 32-bit, Kernel Linux 3.2.0-41-generic-pae with the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 interface on a Dell XPS L502X laptop.
I was using 11.04 natty ubuntu and using USB LAN E-100U network adapter to connect internet. It has started giving me very slow internet speed but window works fine with USB. I don't want to switch to window just for internet speed. Please suggest me the way to improve internet speed.
I have googled and found some tricks but still that does not help to get proper internet speed.
I have ubuntu 12.04 and kde.
I notice that a file transfer on a pen drive in windows with the software ExtremeCopy goes to 30/32 MB/s. Here in ubuntu the transfer on the same pen drive is at 10/14 MB/s. Obviously I use dolphin as file manager but maybe it's a problem with transfer file manager I don't know.
