For some reason when I use bittorent (any client) the network manager kicks me off and will not restart and freezes up which usually leads me to have to restart the computer manually. Also the same thing happens if I use a site that has a lot of images to upload such as a manga/comic reader site. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am new to Linux and to ubuntu/kubuntu karmic koala netbook remix. i can use both ubuntu/kubuntu and its partitioned with windows 7 starter...

I had the same problem with Network Manager on my laptop. I eventually installed wicd which seems to work. Open a terminal and type this:


sudo apt-get install wicd

This will also uninstall network manager, so it might be wise to save a backup of the network manager deb.

As to why it does this I have no idea.

You connecting via wireless or through a wire? What kind of network hardware are you using?

wireless through a linksys router. It says it cannot contact a wireless access point.
