I have just installed openSUSE 10.3 (and its great!). I've got a problem tough. After about approximately every 3 minutes my internet connection times out and even causes the other computer on the LAN to time out. When the connection is not working Kopete and XChat still work. I would like to solve this problem as it is frustrating and annoying for me and other people.
Please be aware that I'm an average/newbie linux user.
Thank you in advanced.
Here is some info:
- I'm on a router
- 2 computers are connected to the router (one with Vista Home Premium and the other WinXP/openSUSE10.3)
- Problem arises when on linux
- No one is downloading anything when this happens.
