Slow wifi on Gnome

I’m having similar issues on Gnome. It starts out fine after a reboot but eventually slows down to the point that web pages don’t load at all, sometimes even losing connection and forcing me to login to the network again. I already tried switching to the dkms driver but this caused it to not even show any available networks, as if the network adapter wasn’t recognized.

Please, don’t hijack other threads. If you have an issue next time - create your own topic (which I did for you, this time.) :wink:


@Wollie Apologies, I figured it was the same issue so putting it in the same thread was ok. I’ll make a new one from now on.

In any case, I just reinstalled the Broadcom driver and that doesn’t seem to make any difference.
