bad wireless card?
I have a HP Pavilion n3310 laptop w/ a AMD K6-2 processor, 184 mb ram and a 5 gig HD running on windows XP pro with service pack two. I purchased Linksys WPC54g wireless g PC card so i can connect to the wireless network in my area. The card worked fine for awhile, now all of a sudden it started acting up. It will find a network, say that the signal strength is excellent, try to acquire an IP address for about two seconds, then disconnect for about 5 seconds and then try to conect again. Sometimes it will connect, but if it does its rare and only stays connected for a few minutes. I have no idea what could be causing this, but i am beginning to think the wireless card is bad. Any ideas?
