Default Laptop runs 70-75C wireless failure

When i play games on my laptop it usually runs from 70C - 75C and my wireless card (PCMIA) overheats, i must use wireless because my other computer uses the only wired ethernet i have in my room, and i have a USB 1.0 port on my laptop, if i buy one of those external USB wireless thingeys will it be slower because i have a usb 1.0 not 2.0?

Yes it will be slower - it will be around 5MBPS most.

haha well if it broke then its not gona help much, from the sound of it sounds like a pretty old laptop (usb1.0) so i suggest opening it up and clearing the dust out because it makes a ton of difference temperature wise
