A few days ago my Internet was working fine, then the day after I couldn't connect. I checked network settings and such, and the only thing wrong was that I wasn't receiving nearly as many packets as were being transmitted. Also my sisters laptop was connecting to the Internet fine (running windows XP) I tried different settings for my network, I also tried messing around with modem settings and router settings. Nothing worked, and then yesterday it just started working out of nowhere. I have had this problem once before when I used Mandrake, but now I'm on Ubuntu. When this problem comes up I can only use a certain version of AIM and the Terminal also seems to recognize that I am connected. What causes this and what would I need to do if it happens again to fix it? Thanks in advance for any help.
