I just installed Xubuntu 13.10 and I am experiencing some odd behavior on my laptop. Occasionally with no predictable pattern Xubuntu will not be able to find my Wi-Fi network. Specifically the one I was connected to. All other networks in the area still show up.
When I disable Wireless and enable it again it always finds it without issue, so it's not a crucial issue, but still I have to watch after it like a hawk and I'd rather not go through all the trouble.
It's a dirt-old Gateway, lspci tells me that the ethernet controller is Intel Corporation PRO/100 VE Network Connection (rev 02), the router is a NetGear N600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router.
Any help would be awesome.
Update: FIXED, but I can't answer my own question cause I'm new here but here goes:
So after more searching I found out that my particular problem was with network manager. I installed wicd and now my connection isn't dropping anymore. However it came with it's own can of worms as Linux fixes are wont to do.
I had to purge network manager after installing wicd, which was fine, but then wicd wouldn't start until I deleted the link to resolv.conf in /etc/ and copied the file found in /run/resolvconf/resolv.conf into /etc/. For whatever reason the link was not enough. Then I was golden. Hope this fixes similar problems for you guys.
