I have recently installed ubuntu alongside windows 8 using ubuntu 12.10. The first bad thing I noticed is that my wifi was skipping in and out, I could be connected for about 3 seconds before I lost connection. I don't have this problem in win 8. I looked into it, and none of the commands (using terminal) people used to fix the problem worked for me. I decided to just try updating to 13.04. This worked better before I thought about it, no wifi=no internet. So my question is If there is a way to

a. fix the wifi


b. update without internet
