Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a default firewall in 14.04 LTS? My speed will build up to 200k at best then shoots back down to zero and sometimes causes my connection to crash.
All other devices on my wireless network download over 1/Mbps and have no problem streaming live video except on my new laptop with said 14.04LTS.

Just getting back into Ubuntu and just installed 14.04 LTS. Is there something which will ensure my connection stays stable, as it seems something keeps making it go to zero.

Also Youtube on my launcher says I need Flash, but I have Flash and Flash plugin installed, Adobe works on Chrome as I added the plugin but my live streams are choppy on laptop but perfect on phone using same wireless connection. The launcher version of Ubuntu doesn't recognize Flash. Please help never want to go back to Windows but really green on Linux
