Hello, all! I have installed the Fedora 28 on my Lenovo Ideapad 320 and I'm having some problems with it. Biggest one is with the wifi. Speed test is showing speed not more than 10-12Mbps.It should be much faster! Thanks in advance!

For some wifi cards, Linux contains drivers with limited features only. In some cases, this includes lower transmit/receive rates.

We'd need more info on your wifi hardware to tell you what's going on. Using the iw command may give you more information on supported bitrates and frequencies. modprobe may give a hint on the used kernel modules. lsusb or lspci give details on the hardware, depending on whether the wifi hardware is connected using USB or PCI(e). Without that information we can only guess.

That's possible and pretty common.
