i am a fairly new user to ubuntu and linux in general. i have dual-booted vista and ubuntu on my laptop for about the last 6 months. last night windows crashed and i decided that i would finally make the leap into only using ubuntu. well something that i never noticed dual-booting is that my wireless is horrible. the only way i can get a connection is if i am within 5 feet of my router. i know that the wireless card itself works because it was fine under windows. even when it connects it only will connect for 15 min or so before it drops. if you need more information please let me know. thank you in advance for any help.
