Im new to the forum and linux world so please go easy on me ^^!
Basically Ive been using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid for a while now on my netbook (samsung NC10) been flawless and fast. After the updates earlier this evening (someone tell me where I can find a log of recent updates? =D) my wireless has been acting up. It's turned painfully slowly when im next to the router and when im further away it barely connects! Even if it does I cant expect a webpage to load either.
Heres some information that may be of use:
