loaded off of 'Linux 2011 Edition Bible cd using ubuntu 10.04. 10.04 lts upgrade or random software updates fail due to url(s) timing out.
when operating, intel wireless works ok.
googled topic & much conflicting info on subject.
after many comcast attempts to get me to increase circuit speed and seemingly unexplained general system slow down in both linux and windows environments, I am starting to lean towards one and/or two possible problem areas: one, 64 bit machine & current BIOS somehow not compatible? And/or, two, comcast DHCP circuit is 'some how' throttling back, down my connection? Anyone know how to monitor for, detect such a circumstance?
-- looks like the place to be.
thanks, Rebus.
