At Newport City we have not had any issues. We are using netbooks running Linux Mint 14 or 15 and Chrome as the browser.

As Eric mentioned, the issue is most likely the wifi or connection issue...that was an issue at U32 as well.

We are having a problem maintaining connectivity with Google Apps at several of our schools.  Students will connect and then the connection times out with students getting a “trying to connect” error message.  This is not a problem every time in that it has been sporadic over a period of time and it is disruptive.  Yesterday we experienced issues in three schools.   I have read the Google Apps Best Practices Networking Guide and I believe we are doing everything they recommend.  Has anyone else been experiencing this issue? If so, what corrective actions did you take?
