View Full Version : [ubuntu] network manager drops connection constantly

April 10th, 2009, 10:50 PM
What is up with network manager!!! I am using a usb wireless adapter.
after login network manager shows connected to network. I tried 3 times to create a shipment at UPS.com and each time the connection failed. It is not just these three times either. it is so friggin erratic. the modem is only 10 feet away. When ever this happens I usually have to unplug the adapter and plug it back in again. The worst part is that network manager always shows connected even though the connection is down!!!! I have been dealing with this issue for some time now and I am done with it. I missed shipping a package because of it and I need to fix this insidious problem.
Any Ideas?
