http://ubuntuforums.org – My wife just got a System76 Gazelle Professional and the wireless acts strangely - and I think it is just incompatible with our "routers" If the laptop is plugged in (power) it will connect and work well. As soon as it is unpluged (power) and running on batteries the ping speed (to google.com) goes from about 58-60ms to like 250-300ms and starts dropping packets. The same test at our fire hall causes the ping time to increase from about 59ms to 150ms, but no packets get dropped. so. . . What is a compatible router? The laptop has a Centrino Wireless-N 1030 in it. More d (Hardware)
