http://ubuntuforums.org – Am I the only one that thinks this, or do myriads of others experience the same performance but suffer in silence? And this is a serious question! After 6 years of being 100% Linux-based, wireless has proven to be its only real Achilles-heel. Currently I have 2 computers that run 24/7, one a Zoran mini-pc with Ubuntu 10.04, the other a Dell M1210 laptop with 3 OS's installed, Ubuntu/Fuduntu/WinXP, the latter having just been added in the hope of gaining some insights into my wireless issues. I'm also working with 3 different wireless cards which are interchangeable between the 2 PC's - Ath (Hardware)
