Hi to whoever reads this,

I have always had trouble in the past getting wireless adapters and what not to start working on Ubuntu but with each 6-month upgrade most problems are fixed while new ones are made. Since Ubuntu 10.10 just came out I thought I'd give it a go and test it with my hardware.

Before 10.10 Ubuntu could not connect with my wireless device and I had to do many things with gedit and such to get it working. After I have upgraded to 10.10 Ubuntu now recognizes my wireless device and network and I can search the web...but wait here it comes.


Literally minutes after a fresh install and first connection to my network my wireless signal will drop and prompt me to reconnect. Of course the first thing comes to mind I reconnect which doesn't work so I unplug the device and replug it making it works...Two minutes later my connection drops again and so I so reboot, and if you really want to know what happens next just restart this paragraph.

Things you need to know

Operating System - Ubuntu 10.10 64-Bit
Wireless Adapter - Hawking HWUN3 Hi-Gain Wireless-N Network USB Adapter
Router - Apple Airport (99% sure it has all updates)


So to anyone who can help fix my problem, cheers.
