[xubuntu-users] 9.10 SSH Woes

It has been quite sometime since I originally wrote about this problem. 
  I was really hoping after a few updates it would just work.  However 
the issue is still prevalent.

Anytime I SSH to my home computer running 9.10 there are massive delays 
between commands.  Sometimes it takes up to a minute for my text to show 

I have proved over and over this problem is only within 9.10.  Numerous 
times I have fresh installed 9.04 and 9.10 and 9.04 runs smooth while 
delays occur on 9.10.

What could have changed between 9.04 and 9.10 to cause the networking 
delays.  Did the Network manager, SSH version, wireless properties, 
something else get a significant update?
