with "Linux jargon".

You haven't really given enough information to make sense of that.
How are you connecting to the internet?
How exactly does it "keep failing"?

It works perfectly well for me.
But so did FC-3.
I have problems, but so do I with Windows-XP.
I generally find a solution by googling or looking at documentation.
In my experience, all operating systems today are completely stable.
Personally, I don't think different Linux distributions
make all that much difference.
The main engine is the kernel,
and that is essentially the same from one distribution to another.
I choose Fedora because I reckon it will cause me the least hassle.
