I've installed 8.10, and the internet is working fine, except that my connectivity reads at a low 65%. Everything works, but sometimes videos are choppy(more than they used to be on windows), and I think it's due to the low connectivity.

When I used windows, it simply said "very high" or something like that. So I'm not sure if there even is any difference.

Does anyone have any tips for boosting that connectivity, or improving the streaming quality in firefox? (I've done all those "hacks" in the firefox options, [i think]).

Perhaps it's the firmware in my router?-- 2wire something or other...

The only thing that can possibily improve your connection strengh is your wifi card driver. Make sure to have the latest one and the better fit for Ubuntu.
