http://ubuntuforums.org – Having a very strange problem with Ubuntu 12.04. On the whole it connects to the internet fine, but every now and again when I try to use a website (even Google) it will instantly fail and say that the server is not responding. After a few attempts to refresh, it usually works. We're talking maybe 1 in 10 or 1 in 20, but it happens frequently enough to be annoying. Here's the thing: They are two completely different machines. One is a home built desktop (Hackintosh) with a wired network. One is a MacBook Air 4,2 with its Broadcom Wifi. It happens with both Firefox and Chrome. It's fine (Hardware)
