I have installed 12.10 64 bit on my new Toshiba and I'm finding that the Wifi is constantly dropping. I did manage to install the drivers from Realtek's site but I'm having a problem where the connection is constantly dropping power. The signal meter goes from full to nothing while I'm sitting in front of the router. and none of my other computers are having this issue. The system never shows the Wifi as disconnected.
