http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi all, I'm currently dual booting Fedora and Win XP and my computer is right on the edge of my wireless network. I'm typing this from XP because while Fedora can see the wireless and can connect to it the speeds are so low that I can barely get to Google, let alone browse the internet or god forbid download a file. XP on the other hand can browse just fine. As I'm dual booting both operating systems are using the same wireless card which Fedora tells me is: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11b/g Wireless (rev 03) Windows is obviously using the Windows drivers and Fedora is also using the Windows drivers with Ndiswrapper. Why is the connection so much slower and more patchy on Fedora? And what can I do about it? Many thanks in advance for any help, I'll happily boot into either OS and post more information if required. (HowTos)
