    Wifi Sharing with Network Manager - Works for a bit then stops

    Hi there,

    As the title suggests I am sharing a Wifi connection from my netbook (Xubuntu 13.04) to my Desktop (Xubuntu 13.04) over ethernet.

    I have been using the network manager to do this, setting the "Shared to other computers" option.

    And it works, for a bit.

    I use firefox to browse, search something random in google, and it works, then something else and.... nothing.

    No indication of disconnect, Dmesg says link active, and so does network manager.

    I can still use the network on the netbook at the same time, no issues.

    When it 'hangs' i attempt to ping the router, and nothing, no messages at all.

    I can ping and browse if i disconnect and reconnect, but again for 5-10 seconds only.

    Any ideas?

    Kind Regards

    I've borrowed another laptop to test with, also running Xubuntu (13.04), and it works reliably. So it most be something on my Netbook that is causing the issue.
