I’m getting the same problem has anyone fixed this. Running ubuntu 12.10 and same thing as above. Start computer internet works fine. start bittorent client then connection goes south after 5 to 10 minutes. I have a netgear n300. was running windows with it no problem. windows got a virus no surprise there. so I changed over to Ubuntu 12.10. Got the N300 to work, got the audio to work now cant seem to get the connection I need.
I tried changing the peers, upload and downloads speed. when i changed the peers to 5 it seemed to work a little longer but in the end I still had to unplug the stick and plug back in.
