I am new to Ubuntu and have just installed 13.10. I have an Alienware m14x R2 and, at random intervals, webpages will simply fail to load. I never lose the wireless connection, though, according to Ubuntu. I am also running Windows on a separate hard drive and when I use Windows, this does not happen.

I believe this is Ubuntu acting up as this happens on two separate wireless networks I use daily. (When I used a wired connection, this does not happen either)

Under additional drivers, nothing is listed. Additionally, the solutions I have read, which suggest to change the DNS resolver in /etc/resolv.conf is outdated as other users have said this solution no longer works because the functionality of resolve.conf has changed.

Thank you for your help. Here is my wireless card information:

You sure they are HTTP 404 responses? That means that Ubuntu was able to connect to the server but the server borked, which means Ubuntu is innocent of all guilt. –  Braiam Nov 7 '13 at 22:38
    
Perhaps I'm using the wrong terminology. Specifically what happens is that the webpage will sit there & try to load for about 30 seconds before Google Chrome says "Unable to connect to the Internet" though, my wireless never says disconnected. When I hard wire, the issue goes away. –  Ryan S. Nov 7 '13 at 22:41
