Why is Ubuntu suddenly crippling my network?
|September 1, 2014||Posted by forumadmin under TechQns||
I’m running Xubuntu 14.04 64-bit. I have recently started noticing randomly that my wireless adaptor suddenly becomes a jamming device for the network I’m connected to!
I see 0Kbit/s in my network meter incoming, but 200Kbit/s going out on the wlan0 interface.
Suddenly, everyone on the network I’m connected to begins having connectivity issues. This only happens when my laptop is on, connected via wifi, and on Ubuntu. I have been able to reproduce the issue on a live session as well.
Here is some infos:

I would be very grateful for any help you can give me!
