I have been using Mint since Mint9, then LM10, LMDE 32bit and now have settled in using LMDE 64bit.
When I first installed LMDE64, I had a bad DVD, my burner was slowly dying and ended up with a slightly unstable but working OS, which disconnected me from the internet many times through out the day.
When I realised the burner was bad, I replaced it, burned a new LMDE64, reinstalled, and the disconnect issue almost went away.
At least once a day my connection will just drop. I can't say that it does it every time I do something in particular, it happens at random time, some times with nothing running. Some times it is in the morning, other times at night. It has done it once a day since the good install.
This never happened in any of the other Mint OSes, and does not happen in Debian 6.0, I have a few other OSes installed on bootable flash drive and it never happens in any of those.
Any ideas to what may be causing it ti disconnect or how to track it down?
