    Unhappy internet connection won't last


    Hi All,

    I installed Linux, and when I tried to connect to the internet, it connected and stayed connected for 15 minutes or less, then disconnected, tried to reconnect but failed. When I looked in the wireless internet connections, it didn't show my connection, but it did when it was connected. When I use Windows XP the internet works fine, so i think it's a problem with Linux. Can someone please tell me how to get it working? And if it requires programming, where do I do the programming? I am using Ubuntu. Right now I am typing this message in Windows.

    Thanks for the help.

    a little more detail:

    1. what wireless card
    2. what kind of router

    I use ndiswrapper, if you want I can find instructions for your specific card (it's a program that uses windows wireless drivers in Linux).

    Okay,

    I have a wireless USB adapter, and it is: Dell 1450 Model: D1450U.

    My wireless router: Actiontec MI424-WR Rev.c. I use Verizon FIOS internet.

    I hope this helps.

    P.S. Sorry for the wait, it took me some time to find this info.
