I noticed that my WiFi dies for a short amount of time at regular 5-10 second intervals. This is shown in the network monitor widget below:
This is particularly problematic when using Skype. Does anybody know what is causing this?
I am using a Dell M6800 laptop, with a Broadcom WiFi device.
I tried changing the channels in my router, but that did not seem to help. Every time I changed the channel, there was a short period of no wifi, and then the same behavior began once more.
