I am running Ubuntu 11.04 on an ASUS eeePC netbook. I've noticed that when I am downloading using the latest (as of Aug 17) Transmission, my network completely drops (I cannot ping the gateway, all other network apps stop working). I have to tell Ubuntu to reconnect before anything will work again. I haven't tried much but fiddle with some Transmission settings to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas how I can fix this? I'm not familiar with anything like rebuilding a kernel to upgrade the network or anything.
To add, this problem did not happen when I had Ubuntu 9.04 installed with whatever latest build of Transmission it had.
