Multiple computers inside the network run various OSes, and connect through Wi-Fi or Physical connection. My desktop runs Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit, and has consistently slow or failing NSLookups.
I bought a new network card, which didn't help. Bought a new Wi-Fi adapter, didn't help. Installed Windows, didn't help. The only alternative is to change the motherboard.
I logged two parameters using a shell script over the course of two hours:
time nslookup google.com
Ping reports 13% packet loss, and Nslookup times out constantly, and has a rough average of 13 seconds, while it also resolves instantly at times.
I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to replace the motherboard, is there any other alternative?
