Hp Pavillion dv 6000 wireless card on Ubuntu 8.10 turns off and on randomly

Hello All,

I am a Linux Newbie and have a HP Pavillion dv6000 running Ubuntu 8.10.
Wireless has been updated but anytime I try and download a torrent or watch a streaming video it will disconnect and connect disrupting the download so it wont continue. Is there any thing I can do to fix this. Im pretty sure its a Broadcom wireless card but not sure.

Thanks for any help

Well run lspci and if you can't figure it out post the output here so we know for sure what card it is. On a side note I had a dv9000 and I have a dv6000 (has issues of its own right now but that's another story) the 9000 had a Broadcom card and never had an issue with linux, the 6000 has an intel 3945 and I have experienced the same issue when running 32-bit linux, but not when running 64-bit version both 32-bit and 64-bit were debian lenny on the 6000 and was running sarge on the 9000.

I think it may have something to do with the 32-bit, are you running on 64-bit hardware, you might try that.
