He stated his torrent failures occur on both one rev of Ubuntu and one rev of
Debian--two Linux platforms.  My somewhat educated guess is that both revs use
the same version of the wireless driver and likely other network kernel code
that is different from the rev of Ubuntu which he has no torrent problems
with.  They may even use the exact same kernel rev.  I've not researched this
