can't stay connected to internet

Post#1 by rpallen » 24 Jul 2015, 13:20

I suspect this problem is related to my wifi adaptor or its driver because I don't have any connectivity problems with my other computers using the same wifi connection.
I am using a Multilaser usb wireless adaptor which I think is using a realtek driver.
When I start Porteus, I can connect to the internet, but after a few minutes I can't access any websites and the usm update function fails. But the icon in the panel still indicates I'm connected to the network.
What should I do?
