How to test if wireless card is giving up
Been using Ubuntu 9.10 since the first beta if I recall correctly. I also kept it up to date so since the final version is supposed to be out today, I'm pretty sure I'm using something solid.
A couple of weeks ago, I started noticing that my internet connection get pretty week if I'm just in the room next to the one with the router. The signal also is very week when my laptop is on a pillow. The signal icon still tell me that I receive a strong signal.
I think its either a bug in the new Ubuntu or its my wireless card that's starting to fail. Laptop is only 2 years old, but the battery already is at only 30% capacity and the laptop heats like hell (didn't have that problem in the beginning)
Is there anyway to easily test my wireless card to see if the problem lies there?
Thanks in advance.
