My wireless card does that too, and what fan are you talking about. I don't really know how a fan could interfere with the signal transfer.

I dont really see how the fan is going to mess with the network card so I wouldn't worry about that. Make sure you've dusted out your PCI slots well and make sure the card is also clean. Try positioning the antenna in different ways as well

Lastly, dumb question, but is it your wireless card or the internet itself? Because i used to think it was my card but when I surfed the internet on our main directly connected computer, I realized I was experiencing the same problems... Turned out to be a modem problem.

I really don't think wireless cards get that hot, certainly not enough so to make the connection go down for a couple of minutes... Do you by chance have any spyware that you know of?

Mine doesn't have a fan, doesn't get hot, and it randomely frops too. That's just how it does, but it works great for $3.00, thanks to compusa's black friday deal. The antenna positioning is crucial tho, the slightest movement really changes the signal strength.
