We’re modernizing the office on Kimitachi and bought a couple of DWA-125 Wi-Fi dongles in order to get rid of the ugly and bad cables (yeah i know they’re not bad but..)!
Everything was going fine: plug and play, network recognized, connected and ta-da! slow connection! slower than the slowest cripple snail!
Fortunately, since i use ubuntu, a lot of folks have had this problem before me and, from the hundreds of non-working solutions i found, i came out with a little simple guide that works as a charm for me:
- Disable IPV6 – Go to /etc/sysctl.conf and add the following line: net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6=1
- Blacklist the mean module that is controlling your dongle (code below)
And that’s it! Go get that 10GB download!
