USB wifi adapter random disconnect and slow speed

Good Evening,
I have recently installed Zorin and I am currently having a few troubles with my wifi. Sometimes it randomly disconnects and won’t reconnect until I restart my computer, and when it is working I only get around 4Mbps of download. This is usually 50-100… I am using a USB adapter for my wifi.

Any help would be appreciated.

I’m not at my PC now so I’m going off memory. Can you check Settings->Power to see if there is a USB suspend setting? I can’t recall. If there is then try it with it turned off.

Thanks for your reply.

Yep I found that earlier and turned it off but it’s still no better…

Does the adapter manufacturer provide linux drivers?

I’ve managed to dig out an old adapter and this seems to be working fine, thank you for your efforts though.

If you could post the details - make / model - of the adapter giving you problems it will let other people know of potential issues with that particular make / model.
