The little connection that couldn't.

The wireless internet at my school sucks. Since the start of the Fall semester is has been barely usable. My connection is dropped every 2 to 10 minutes. I've upgraded the drivers for my wireless card -- didn't help at all. It happens all over the damn school but not *all* the time.

It's hard to say exactly what it is. Between the summer and fall semesters I upgraded to Ubuntu Dapper, but I don't think that would cause these problems. Especially since I'm running a custom kernel and the latest drivers. Tom has similar issues. I think it's just the access points being overloaded with traffic.

It's really frustrating though, and defeats the purpose of having wireless access.
