Hi all. My USB adapter was detected and installed fine. However, I am noticing erratic connection speed every couple of minutes or so. The link never seems to completely go away. But the link quality dips to 8/100 (via iwconfig) and ping response from my AP climbs to 5-25+seconds. If I unplug the card and replug it in. It works great for a little while then the same thing happens. Anyone else seen this issue? I have used the same card with another Ubuntu 7.04 (I think 386vesrion) and it worked rock solid. Thanks for any pointer.

I have a Dell dimension 9150 pentium D 825
