View Full Version : [ubuntu] Wifi keeps dropping using usb dongle

December 3rd, 2009, 04:13 PM

I've tried with two usb dongles from netgear on the new ubuntu 9. Basically what happens is they connect to the network but will only remain connected for a short period of time. The internet will only let me get to one web page then the connection will be dropped.

I just assumed that these dongles will work out of the box with the new version of ubuntu. I was wondering i my assumption is wrong. What should I be doing? I'd rather not go with win7 as I need my cpu to work well :)
