Tell me please, do you use NetworkManager in Arch linux or "ifup"?

You have good wireless adapter, problems with script which can not detect them properly.

Do please under root "modinfo b43"

The problem is, kernel chooses for wireless b43, but there is no b43. So do under root "modprobe b43", and then check /var/log/messages

Do "modinfo lib80211_crypt_tkip"

Do "hwinfo |grep RTL"

Now
"modprobe -r lib80211_crypt_tkip"
"modprobe -r b43"
"modprobe b43"

And then "ifup eth2" and "iwconfig eth2". Check your internet connection.

Alright I removed those drivers and put back the b43 driver and ifup and iwconfig give me the same output as earlier and yea connection is still off, have a ( legal ) torrent going it spikes up to 300kbps then drops to around 100kbps then 26 kbps then back up to 300 continuously.

If "ifup eth2" and "iwconfig eth2" won't work, use NManager.

"connection is still off" - but you can download with "300kbps then drops to around 100kbps then 26 kbps then back up to 300kbps continuously".

Any way "300kbps then drops to around 100kbps then 26 kbps then back up to 300kbps continuously" - it is good because of torrent.

Well if I plug in my ethernet wire I get any where from 700kbps - almost a meg and it stays at that.

From your first post: ..."The problem is the connection and/or packets drop dramaticly almost down to 56k speeds and then eventually the card will totally disconnect and try to reconnect to the network again."

Now, does your wireless card disconnect and try to reconnect to the network again?

OK. We found a problem any way. The driver is wrong.
But If you like Ubuntu and want to use it, I strongly suggest to post to their forum:

And ask: what the f****k is going on with Ubuntu 9.10. Why my wireless card is called "PCI 900.0: 0200 Ethernet controller".

Developers have to fix this shit.
Write to their forum.
