WiFi Extremely Slow on Manjaro KDE

wifi
#1

When I’m using Manjaro, the WiFi is AWFULLY slow. I get 10mb/s download rate while on Windows 10 I get over 100mb/s. I’m not sure if this is a driver problem or if it’s a problem with Manjaro itself. I’ve had this issue since installing Manjaro on one of my partitions in my hard drive. I’m using a TP-Link adapter. How will I fix this problem?
I’m new to Manjaro so excuse me if this is an obvious question.

We need a little more information than that.

Please post the output of:

You can try the solutions in below article. 2nd solution worked for me.

Disabling N isnt exactly the first thing you want to use as N should be giving you better speed than a, b, g - if disabling N helps - it either means your hardware doesnt support it in the first place, or it is faulty or misconfigured in some way.

For that guide -

Step one is incomplete and should be named according to which atheros you are using.

DO NOT follow step 3.

Also DO NOT follow Step 6 as it is a bad joke and disables your adapter.
[well if you even had iwconfig .. which you probably dont by default]

(for all - you also dont need su and should exit it when you do use it and are done)

Probably my wifi modem doesn't support it. I'm not really sure actually.

#6

enable
haveged

systemctl enable haveged

then reboot
having less entropy also causes wifi to be slow
