    Wireless Network detected but internet connection extremely slow/times out.

    Hi, I have Ubuntu setup up on an IBM Thinkpad R50e,
    My internet access is via an ADDON GWAR3000 wireless router.
    After installing Ubuntu the network is detected with maximum signal strength. When I try to browse the internet Firefox takes an inordinate amount of time to connect or it just times out. I have tried typing the IP DNS number in the address field and this helps a little.
    I am a complete newbie with regard to Linux so any help would be greatly appreciated.
