Linux Mint 19.1. Wired connection: down 85.30Mb, up 83.59Mb. Wifi Hotspot: down 0.78Mb, up 9.70Mb. Why so slow?? I want more speed.

My connection settings: enter image description here enter image description here

On my Windows 10 1903 I'm getting 60Mb/55Mb results. If that's a typical Linux problem and there's no solution for that - OK, that would be the answer. But please give me a proof (links, notes in docs, etc.).

I found a bunch of other questions like this here on AskUbuntu. No solution though. Please help.

I've just changed 'band' to 5GHz. No effect.

  • did you provide all of the available information? – jsotola Aug 14 '19 at 5:58
  • How did you measure the bandwitdth? – Panki Aug 14 '19 at 6:49
  • the AR9462 is a 802.11n chipset, no 5GHz band there. AFAIR is also a quite cheap and old chipset. As why a hotspot/portal could be slow, it depends on a lot of factors, there is not enough data on the question for answering that. see this related answer unix.stackexchange.com/questions/252210/… – Rui F Ribeiro Aug 14 '19 at 10:25
  • @Panki, via speedtest.org. – Victor Gorban Aug 14 '19 at 12:50
  • @Rui F Rubeiro, I readed through that answer. So what do I need to do? Buy new firmware? Replace my drivers? And what kind of info do you need? Drivers, again? – Victor Gorban Aug 14 '19 at 12:53
