Short answer - did not get it to work yet.

I am yet to move to Kubuntu, ran into some trouble recompiling the
kernel and did not have the time to go back to it. I have a spare
desktop where I can try it but am unable to move around too much
because I have a fractured ankle :(.

On speeds, I am not too impressed. First half of the day I get better
speeds but with a tendency to fluctuate. Evenings are unusable. I am
planning to disconnect.
