http://ubuntuforums.org – It seems that my internet connection is very unstable in ubuntu. In Windows it's fine, but in ubuntu, the connection seems to drop often at random times as I'm surfing the web. It drops for about 15-20 seconds before reconnecting. I also get this connection drop immediately after opening Google Chrome, almost every time. I'm running ubuntu on a Core 2 Quad PC, so the OS itself is zippy. I have an hp p6150t desktop with a Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI-e Ethernet controller, according to hardinfo System Profiler. (HowTos)
