Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1000 - Wifi connection is very slow - how do I configure or fix it?

I'm a new Ubuntu user trying to get my wifi working properly.

How do I install a downloaded driver?

After changing some configurations in my router I'm able to get 5Mbps on my laptop (but +100Mbps on my smartphone)

I've also followed this whole itsfoss tutorial but I'm still not getting the full speed.

Recently I've found the proper driver on

I've copied the iwlwifi-1000-3.ucode file to /libfirmware

But I guess my wifi is still using the generic driver.

$ lshw -C network

Sorry, guys! My mistake.

By executing: $ nmcli dev wifi list

1. I've realized it was a router configuration.

It was only 802.11b (limited to 11mbps).

I've changed to 802.11n (up to 130mbps).

2. I've also realized that

There is a bug on Intel Support for Linux Page. The Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 1000 firmware versions are switched between Kernel versions 3.2+ and 2.6.30+.

Then I've followed this steps:

$ tar -xvzf iwlwifi-1000-ucode- 
$ cd iwlwifi-1000-ucode-
$ sudo cp iwlwifi-1000-5.ucode /lib/firmware/
