I’m on fedora 36 after an upgrade from 35, everything is working fine, I just noticed wireless connection performances could be better, for example im having up to 100 Mb/s contract, on my phone I getting 99Mb/s on speed test apps on laptop running fedora I’m getting like 38Mb/s max , is it a hardware issue meaning the wireless hardware on laptop can’t deliver more than that or can it be, I’m trying to install libreoffice on fedora and it’s taking like forever on software store.
There are a number of factors here. Someone might be watching Netflix in the other room. The speedtest mirror might be degraded. ISPs often get congested and have periods where you don’t get the full bandwidth. Things like baby monitors can wreak havoc on wifi.
You can see some info with iw by running iw dev wlp3s0 link and/or iw dev wlp3s0 info (replace wlp3s0 with your own device (ip l) if applicable) or monitor it in realtime with iftop.
If it doesn’t clear up, you could post the output of iw phy here so we can see what the hardware looks like to Fedora.
Not really what’s happening, my phone and my wife’s and smart tv connected to wifi and while doing speed test no streaming on TV or whatsoever.
I just thought maybe the modem on Android phones is stronger and laptop I have in HP nothing crazy but wifi should be faster… I renewed my router to fritzbox and built mesh wlan so connection should be stable…
Which fedora version are you running?
If you installed the Workstation release then libreoffice should already be installed.
Have you noticed a slower download earlier, or is this the first time?
The download rate depends upon a lot of things.
The remote server, the internet with all the traffic through however many connection points are involved, your own ISP, your local wifi AP, your wifi interface on the PC, which wifi band you are using (2.4 or 5 GHz), time of day and how busy the net is, whether your phone is using wifi or cellular (or both) when doing the test, etc.
It also depends on how you (or the tool you are using) are interpreting the speed.
100 Mb/sec is about 12 MB/sec so if you are reading that as megabits or megabytes it is significantly different. Also megabits vs mibibits is different (powers of 10  vs powers of 2 ).
Downloading an app is totally different than running a speed test, both in route followed and files transferred.
All in all it seems you are comparing apples to oranges.
Mesh reduces throughput locally. It’s possible that the phones are connecting to the WAN router where your laptop is further down the mesh and that’s a factor? In any case, if you can give us the output of iw phy we should be able to rule out the hardware capabilities as far as Fedora can see.
Im running fedora 36 workstation .
and i did not notice download speed decreasing because before i upgraded hardware it was even worse . because the provider had some broken cables in my region , after they fixed it i decided to upgrade the router and repeater and testing the new internet speed on phone was crazy , here is a screenshot of speed test on laptop , just the standard one from google , i surprised by the test just now , im hitting over 78Mbit/s , yesterday it was 38 Mbit/s
It looks like your card should be capable of exceeding the bandwidth for your ISP as far as Fedora is concerned. Another thing to consider is that you should make sure you’re connecting over 5GHz instead of 2.4GHz for that level of bandwidth.
Make sure the SSID for the 5GHz is advertised (ie, not hidden) in your wireless router/AP settings. It’s also possible to use the same SSID for both, but not all systems properly prefer the 5GHz if you do.
Some routers allow the same SSID for both 2.4 and 5 GHz. If you have the same SSID set for both bands then it usually is selected automatically.
I choose to set a different SSID on my router for each band, then when I connect from the PC I am able to select the band I want to use. I can then choose to connect to the SSID that is on the 5GHz band.
