### Fix slow connection (ubuntu 11.10 - Oneiric Ocelot)

If your wireless internet is damn slow after installing ubuntu 11.10,
here's one way to try and fix it:

This method involves forcing iwlagn to not use n, the commands will disable n on the device without making it a permanant change, check first if this work for you, if you notice that the speed improved then continue to make the change permanant. If this solution didnt work for you, then reboot your computer to revert the chnages.

 sudo rmmod -f iwlagn sudo modprobe iwlagn 11n_disable=1 

If you notice that the wifi speed improved, then make the change permanent :
 gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/iwlagn-disable11n.conf 
and add this line to the file:
 options iwlagn 11n_disable=1 `
save & quit
Important: The above method has been quoted from www.unixmen.com, a site that I've found very useful in the past. The method was the one that worked for me and hence why I want it here. To see the full original post that containts two other methods, please go to the Unixmen post that I am quoting from
