A little while ago I installed Ubuntu on my tower because I was getting tired of Windows; but it seems that either my internet router hates Linux, or the driver keeps choking on itself, because at random intervals, the internet connection will just drop out of nowhere.
Sometimes it's within minutes of turning the computer on, sometimes it's within hours, but it's always the same.
Unity will tell me that it is connected, but nothing is able to make a connection, pages fail to load, DropBox struggles etc.
Sometimes I'm able to reconnect just by disconnecting from wireless for 30 seconds or so, then reconnecting. Sometimes I'm forced to reboot the computer.
So how would I go by making the connection stable?
A bit hardware information:
- 64-bit Intel Sandy Bridge i7-3770 @ 3.4 GHz
- ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless N Adapter
