I'm using a Belkin 802.11g Wireless card, and the connection keeps dropping in and out, seemingly as if the signal is poor.

However, I have a dual boot machine, and annoyingly there seems to be no problem whatsoever getting a signal in windows XP.

How is that even possible? I thought if it were a driver issue then it would not work all the time, not only some times. Can the driver affect the performance?

I have recently upgraded to ubuntu 8, but i started having this problem a few weeks before the upgrade. I tend to use Windows now whenever I need to get online (like now).

Any suggestions?
