@OP kyle: 

Despite the extra noise on your issue, I think anubis's point may have
some validity in that there could be a bug in 10.04 (lucid). You could
always search on launchpad for bugs related to networking to see if your
issue is listed... Otherwise, I stand by the comments in my previous

@ anubis:

If you want to nitpick...

Also note the lack of a specification on the above-mentioned list that
the user be on a particular version of Ubuntu, be it stable or unstable.
Nils is correct, this list is for general user support... for stable and
unstable releases alike. 

There's always a lot of people asking questions on ubuntu+1 installs
months before the release date... It's a very useful activity that can
help determine whether something a user is experiencing is a
bug/regression in the new system, or if they're making a mistake, or
something else entirely.

Ad the title indicates, the ubuntu-devel-discuss list is for talking
about the ubuntu+1 release... i.e. discussing new features to add, old
ones to remove, and general other development/coding-related topics. It
specifies users AND developers because user input is (obviously) highly
valued when a group of developers are making a user-centric OS, and
because it provides a more-or-less open invitation for regular users to
go ahead and join the list, and interact freely with developers to
express their ideas and make opinions known, or just to follow along and
see all the work that goes into making an OS :)

If you look through the archives of the list by thread, in January for
https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel-discuss/2010-January/thread.html you can see very quickly that nearly 100% of the discussion is developer-related... i.e. bugs in software, packaging questions, etc... not regular users asking for help. That's what this list is for.

I hope that has helped clarify the issue a bit... Now let's stay on
topic please.
