I recently fixed my lack of WiFi buy installing new drivers from Realtek (see thread here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2166788&page=2)

Now I have another, possibly unrelated, problem.

The wireless is now working great, but whenever it's enabled, the sound behaves badly - stuttering like a dirty CD. From any source or application its the same.

I've searched the threads and found nothing obvious except one user who had the same problem (unsolved).

Please help.

I'm trying to convince a friend that they're better off with Linux and replaced their Windows with it but I'm struggling here and in danger of looking silly.
