Hi Ubuntu Freaks,

I had yesterday a irritating problem that my ping to my router was really high. I had some more little problems and I decided to reinstall the whole thing.

After I reinstall it and i updated the installation, I check the ping again and that was normal like 0.xxx range. Just like my other PCs running Ubuntu. But now I have that high ping again.

I have a e3000 Linksys router and the laptop i use has a G adapter.



From the high ping laptop.
