Well, I wouldn't say it was wrong. It is just the problem of conflicting
suggestions from several people. OTOH, if you only followed suggestions
of a single person you might end nowhere if you didn't pick the right
person and that person doesn't have the right idea. I thought you wanted
to use a static setup, that's why I gave advice for that route. I had
seen NoOps suggestion to enable roaming mode but I didn't remember if you
had tried it. That's why I asked. At least now I'm quite sure this was
the reason why your interfaces file was modified.

Yes, I think so, unless you install Wicd which has a similar functionality

If you do a fresh install, please try NM and DHCP first before you go back
to a static setup and tell us if / what problems arise. I would really
like to know if there is and advantage for you with a static setup.

Yeah, it is really strange because I didn't post HTML :)

Just one last question: Did you try to use different IP addresses for
wired and wireless interfaces? And if so, did it improve your connection
