I've always used Ubuntu on my netbook, and I've decided that I would like to give it a go on my desktop as well. I am running in to a problem when I boot up the live usb.

For some reason when I type in my wifi info, it connects for a minute or so then looses the connection. After that it continually tries to connect with no success. What's even stranger is that other computers in my house also loose their connection while this occurs.

PS: This happens with both 12.04 and 12.10

Any feedback would be great.
