View Full Version : [all variants] Wireless Network "Stalling"

I seem to have this problem using wireless on my laptop. I know that the problem affects me on both Ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04(so far), and seems to affect all the varients. Whenever I try downloading something large, after awhile the download will stall for, often over a minute, then resume.
This happens in firefox, when downloading files, with synaptic, when downloading packages or sometimes when reloading the sources, and when using subversion. I can still use the network while something is stalled... so it seems to just stall that specific connection. I have another computer on the same network, using ubuntu, with a wired connection, and it doesn't suffer from the same problem, so I'm assuming its a wireless problem...
I'm on a HP Pavilion dv5-1010, and aside from this, everything else seems to work fine with ubuntu... Any ideas?

Edit:
Oh and this problem seems to have made subversion next to useless seeing as when it stalls if tends not to resume, unless that is a different problem, but I would think the two would be related.

post output of ifconfig from the terminal.Your MTU values maybe too low.
