    Dell D-630 keeps dropping the internet connection at random times, a few minutes to maybe an hour is all I get. Then I reboot, then it's up again. So this is NOT an OS issue, because the laptop did the same thing with it's Ubuntu/Windows 7 dual boot setup, It did it in Ubuntu and in Windows. I recently wiped the drive and installed Linux Mint, thinking that I wanted to do this anyway and maybe it would fix that annoying problem. NOT. Still happening. Everything else works great. And it's not a router/modem issue because we have several other computers here that are online always and their connection never drops off. Our connection speed is excellent. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
