Slow wireless then drops connection... very frustrated! Ubuntu 8.10
I am brand new to Linux. I have had it with windows!
I have installed Ubuntu 8.10 on a HP ze4560us.
Before I continue, I have looked everywhere for a solution without luck. So far I like Ubuntu, but it won't do me much good if I cant connect wirelessly.
The wireless is built-in Broadcom BCM4306 (ver2)
Sometimes it will connect to my network, sometimes not. When it does connect, it is usually only for a short time. Then it slows down and disconnects.
I have tried it with and without WPA security. Same problem.
When I ping something, it starts out fast and steadily slows down to nothing then disconnects.
It "feels" like it may be an IRQ conflict, but I don't know how to check that.
Thanks. I hope I can get this worked out, so far I like Linux (except for this problem)!
