    Default VERY slow internet browsing

    Hi guys-I'm trying to browse the web with my EEE PC that I installed BT3 on. It has an Atheros AR5008 card in it. I can connect to the networks fine, but when I try to browse the web it is so slow. Like 1 minute for Google to come up.

    I've got 5 "stars" of connectivity, and it works perfectly here in Windows XP. I'm trying it both off my Live SD card and the other installed directly to the HD. Please help!

    you probably didn't set country code, you probably need to check the orientation and stuff of your antenna.

    I'm sure I didn't; I don't know what a country code even is

    So what do I need to do?

    Also, my antenna is fine-besides being internal, it works fine in Windows XP at the same spot.

    I'll give you three hints:
    • Bumping is apt to bring down wrath. Word to the wise.
    • Drivers
    • Wireshark

    Well what the hell am I supposed to do? I've used Google. I've searched the forums. I've patiently awaited a response. The things I've searched for include "country codes", "country codes backtrack", "backtrack slow internet", and now "wireshark". The only thing I can find is a similar problem here, but with no solution.

    And still, while people complain about "noobs" who never do anything for themselves, you punish me worse than a noob with vague, f***ing unhelpful responses and threats of "this is what happens if you ask for help more than once".

    Sounds like a newb is worse than a noob around here. Would you rather me come here and say "omg h3lp m3 t0 h@ck my int3rw3bs!!!!!!!"
