[ubuntu] Unstable Wired Connectionview story

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.
