I am having some problems on my new install of Ubuntu. My network card (Dlink WDA-2320, which uses the Atheros chipset apparently) is detected and with a quick entry of my network stats into the Ubuntu Network Settings , I was up and running. Awesome. Much easier than on my Slackware 10.2 box.
Unfortunately, I have a problem when it comes to downloading files. The file will download at a good speed (I'm stuck at 30kbs, so anything over 20 kps is "good") for approx. 30 seconds, then the the connection speed will slow down, and eventually stop. Sometimes it will restart within 10 seconds, sometimes within 30 seconds, sometimes within 5 minutes or sometimes it just flat out stops.
I was having a similar problem with my Slackware box. I had installed wifi-radar before I found out you actually have to install some form of driver package(
). After I installed Madwifi and used a script in my rc.local to start the internet I noticed downloads were having the same problem I just described. I removed wifi-radar and I haven't had a problem since.
I haven't done anything to this installation of Ubuntu so I'm really
my head about this one. Any savvy folks care to drop some
on this issue?
Thank you for your time
EDIT: I've noticed that if I'm surfing the web and clicking links, the problem does not occure.
