Slow Wireless Connection Using Ubuntu 12.04 and a Lenovo Thinkpad x200 | Matt Kirwan | 2012

Via @mattkirwan, resolved intermittent Internet connection on Thinkpad X200 with Ubuntu 12.04, when laptop and phone work on wifi just fine.

… the problem, the hardware and the linux distribution to which this problem occurs:

  • Fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin
  • Lenovo Thinkpad x200
  • Wireless hardware: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN

[….]  A basic google [“wireless slow lenovo ubuntu”] set me on the right tracks, this article on had me trying out a couple of solutions, unfortunately none of which worked. Reading through the comments led me to this thread, it seemed that Ubuntu 12.04 uses the iwlwifi module NOT the iwlagn module.
