I feel like I'm on an old 28k dial up connection instead of my fast cable.
Why is it so slow and what can I do to speed it up?
we still need to know which is that adapter.....you posted a sliced lspci, which shows an ethernet card...so can you post your lspci and your lsusb and...a tail -n /var/log/messages just after you've had a disconnection?????farfnarf wrote:I am lost in all this.
And a bit disappointed. It's a newer adaptor on a newer linux distro, and it does not work
for more than a few minutes before dropping the connection. This is a new behavior for
that Acer laptop; I have not seen it do that in other distros. The trouble is, with the other
distros I have to put up with junky multimedia.
I guess each distro has its strengths and weaknesses. I think part of the problem is the
HUGE amount of different hardware out there; my laptop has a type of network card
that is not compatible (at least the driver) with the new linux kernel.
I am afraid to start compiling and things such as that. I'll just mess it up even more.
I'm not sure what to do now. For the time being I am going to just put the Vista hard
drive back in so I can use the laptop without losing the internet connection (I'm posting
this on my old Gateway pc right now).
