    jumpy wireless

    My wireless used to work quite well. I had some issues with it, but everything was well in the end. Now I have some strange issues. I can find wireless networks, I can connect to them, but internet connection itself turns to be sluggish and unstable, and quite often my laptop disconnects suddenly. The result is that wireless internet connection is practically unusable. I don't think this is a router problem, since I had no issues until 3 days ago, and my cellphone connects flawlessly. I tried to restart my router, but nothing changed.
    I have an Acer Aspire 5560 with AMD A4-3300M processor.
    Thank you in advance

    (I'm using Xubuntu by the way. Does this change anything?)

    Re: jumpy wireless

    Need to break the problem in half:
    Is the laptop sluggish on another wireless network?
    Is another laptop sluggish on this network?

    Also:
    Did anything (like a software update) take place 3 days ago?
    Is a wired connection enabled at the same time on the laptop?
    Have you checked to make sure the default route is still configured?

    Update

    I think the problem is related to how my laptop loads the wireless driver. Sometimes things work properly, sometimes they don't. For example, right now, my wireless connection works quite well. I believe so because my laptop is the only one that goes so sluggish.
    Is a wired connection enabled at the same time on the laptop?
    Sometimes I have to. Do you think that's a problem?
    Have you checked to make sure the default route is still configured?
    Can you explain me the question?

    p.s. I'm sorry if my questions look silly, but I swear, I'm trying to learn something
