I have extremely slow wifi connection on my linux mint. The network controller is
Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6235 (rev 24). I found on the ubuntu wiki a fix:
sudo rmmod iwlwifi && sudo modprobe iwlwifi 11n_disable=1
Error: Module iwlwifi is in use by: iwldvm
So I did:
sudo rmmod iwldvm,
sudo rmmod iwldvm (went fine then) and
sudo modprobe iwlwifi 11n_disable=1
My wlan0 was not up, so I started the iwldvm too.
sudo modprobe iwldvm
Unfortunately the internet is still too slow. I tried different approaches but nothing worked. Mainly I am confused that the wifi worked fine for a week, now I am experiencing such troubles. I've read that the kernel upgrade to 3.10 should fix this, but I can't boot that one and 3.9 didn't fix this.
Is it possible that my machine (asus zenbook prime) is using different thing then the
iwlwifi? I am just asking because I found a file in /etc/modprobe.d/ called iwlwifi.conf which contains:
# /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf # iwlwifi will dyamically load either iwldvm or iwlmvm depending on the # microcode file installed on the system. When removing iwlwifi, first # remove the iwl?vm module and then iwlwifi. remove iwlwifi \ (/sbin/lsmod | grep -o -e ^iwlmvm -e ^iwldvm -e ^iwlwifi | xargs /sbin/rmmod) \ && /sbin/modprobe -r mac80211
lsmod | grep iwlwifi command gives me:
iwlwifi 173477 1 iwldvm cfg80211 510937 3 iwlwifi,mac80211,iwldvm
