Lubuntu 20.10 not running at 802.11n speeds on HP elitebook 8460p

Asked by robert on 2021-04-12

recently installed Lubuntu 20.10 on Hp elitebook 8460p and wireless speeds are snail slow. I think wireless card is Intel Centrino Ultimate N6300 a/b/g/n. "Edit connections" menu show 5gz band at AC speeds and 2.4ghz band at b/g speeds. old operating system before Lubuntu was Windows 7 Ultimate and wireless worked just fine at 802.11n speeds. is there an explanation and a fix for why my new wireless speeds don't include an 802.11n option? thank you.

Why 20.10. It only has 3 months of support left

If you reinstall with Ubuntu 20.04 then this wil give LTS support and give 5 years of support.

Can you help with this problem?
