|What kind of equipment do you have for Internet access? Do you have a modem AND a router, or a router BUILT IN a modem? If you have a modem and a router separate, connect one of your computers directly to the modem, and see if you get the same disconnects every 10 to 15 minutes. If that's the case, your ISP or modem may be experiencing problems. If you get a solid connection, then your router may be going bad. I recommend anything from linksys, I myself have a WRT-400n, but I've heard nothing but good things about the WRT54gL Check out newegg.com for cheap and reliable products. If problems still persist, contact your ISP.|
Hope this helped!
I run Ubuntu 9.04 on my Compaq Presario R3000. I also run windows XP & 7(beta) in virtual box.
