One thing I have noticed with my StellarMate X installs is a very slow WiFi throughput on both of my primary mini PCs. One is using the Intel WiFi 6 chipset and the other uses an older WiFi 5 version of the Intel chipset.

I found that editing /etc/modprobe.d/iwlopts.conf and changing options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 to options iwlwifi 11n_disabled=8 increased the download speed to 1.1 Gbps on the home WiFi internet according to fast.com.

The additional benefit is that the VNC connection seems much faster now also.
