This subject is much discussed but no real solution that I can find . The performance of my panda pau06 usb wifi adapter (rt2800usb) is poor
on USB 2 2.5Mb down , 11Mb up
USB 3 21Mb down , 20Mb up
The same device on the same ports runs 3 to 4 times faster on Windows 10 (This is a x86 device with 2 boot drives)
There were discussions about turning off hardware encryption which seems to be the default now anyway
Any suggestions ? How about a usb wifi device using some other driver that works well (in AP mode) ?
The device behaves about the same when used on KDE Neon to access the internet .
I am having to modify this post as I discovered this device will run at all most 80 Mb when plugged into the usb 2 port on a laptop that is 6+ years old (running kde Neon).
When I get my home made router rebuilt I'll have to re-evaluate the issue .
Perhaps its me not it .
