Ubuntu 10.04 Wireless Disconnects While Viewing Video on You Tube

So after struggling with the issues for why my computer would disconnect while viewing videos on You Tube and flash videoes in general I finally found out that my issue related to multicasting on my router. I of course read all of the documents I could find, tried WiCD instead of Network Manager, tried several flash players, and a few other software related things like the Chromium 10 and Firefox 3.6 web-browsers.
In the end what fixed my problem was to go to Security>Firewall>Filter Multicast and check it to enable it on my router. The router is a Linksys E3000, but most Linksys routers have this feature in the same location. After I did that my problems disappeared. I am using 32-Bit 10.04 LTS on a Toshiba A-100 series laptop. I guess what I’m saying is that you might want to look at your router’s settings over too. Oh yeah, and why does it make sense that this worked? Well start with the wiki article on multicasting and take it from there.
