Hi there,

As the title suggests I am sharing a Wifi connection from my netbook (Xubuntu 13.04) to my Desktop (Xubuntu 13.04) over ethernet.

I have been using the network manager to do this, setting the "Shared to other computers" option.

And it works, for a bit.

I use firefox to browse, search something random in google, and it works, then something else and.... nothing.

No indication of disconnect, Dmesg says link active, and so does network manager.

I can still use the network on the netbook at the same time, no issues.

When it 'hangs' i attempt to ping the router, and nothing, no messages at all.

I can ping and browse if i disconnect and reconnect, but again for 5-10 seconds only.

Any ideas?

Kind Regards
