Hey all, first time using Fedora and I’m really impressed. Although I am having an issue with WiFi speed or so it would seem.
Checking my WiFi speed with Ookla and https://fast.com/ I only get between 15 and 20mb download speed. This is very low. On my Android phone connected to the same router from the same distance and frequency band I get 250mb download. My Fedora desktop can also boot Windows 10 and it normally get 180~mb download speed. So the conclusion I’m drawing is that something is a miss with my Fedora install.
My PCI wifi card is the TP Link WDN4800. Dual band 802.11 a/b/g/n Chip Atheros AR9380
thanks for the tips @sixpack13. I’ve booted back into the Windows side and checked my speed. It seems my speed on Windows is also affected. I think the Wifi card is broken or dying.
Wifi standard n is supposed to get bandwidth from the 2.5Ghz and 5Ghz and that pairing gives the extra speed. Being stuck at 50mb max makes me thing 5GHz isn’t working but 2.5Ghz is.
I’ve tried re-seating the card and re attaching the aerials but no joy. A new PCI slot did not help either.

The results from nmcli above do show that the 5Ghz network is available to join but for some reason it is unable to use it for more than 15mb DL speed at best sometimes even less. Perhaps there is some kind of N mode feature broken on either the router or the wifi card. Further tests will have to be carried out.
