Ive seen some odd behaviour with Ubuntu on a Toshiba laptop, not sure what
hardware, but I set the wireless connection to use a static IP and the owner
says that they havent had hardly any connection drops. I think some drivers
have a problem with DHCP sync with some routers. Im sorry its not very
specific, but my point is, sometimes its worth trying static IP to rule out
