I have Ubuntu 12.04 running on a PC at home. I use it to store files, manage git repos, and back up my remote servers.

Everything was running great while I was running Ubuntu 11. Now, the connection is stable when I'm just issuing commands etc. however, after the update any time I try to transfer large files through ssh/sftp The connection times out. This is even when I'm connecting locally where I'd typically be able to move very large files very quickly.

I'm not really sure why i'm seeing this instability I'm using a Linksys WMP600N that works OOB. I'm also not really sure if/how I should be troubleshooting the issue... Should I just be looking for an alternative driver?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: I would like to add that the same is true for outgoing connections. I can't download from or to my Ubuntu box. Previously I'd average 1tb/mo, now I can barely clear 100mb.
