I just got ubuntu 13.10. It works just fine, but the internet connection gets interrupted every so often when I try to load a page from any given websites (after being connected for maybe 10 or 15 minutes).

It's searching and then I get an message saying that I have a problem with my internet connection, thus won't open anything.

I have to restart my computer every time to refresh it. The wireless connection shows it's working, so what could be the problem here?

May be your lan card is not supporting 100 base connection.

first run this command in your terminal sudo mii-tool type password.

eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok

You set your eth0 on 10base. Run this command in terminal

sudo mii-tool -F 10baseT-HD

Note :- (This command will set your lan connection 10base) After that your connection will be lost.

You should check your network connection performance.To do a network test just go to: and click the button to start the tests.

The Connectivity Checker will perform a series of network tests for modern Web Services like WebSockets and WebRTC as well
