OK, so I built this computer about 2-3 weeks ago. The specs are in my sig.
So since I'm in the other room from the router, I use a wireless adapter to get internet. And it works OK. Except for that the wireless adapter I have always drops out the signal after a varied amount of time. So I uninstalled the wireless software for the adapter (Linksys). But when I reinstall and restart the computer, the computer is REALLY slow, so I go into task manager is using 100% of my CPU power. So now if uninstall the software and reboot, does the CPU return to normal usage.
So today my brother got a new Linksys adapter (different model from mine) for his computer he got for Christmas, and it was working well. So I tried it on my computer, and guess what, it sends the CPU back to 100%. So new adapter, different software, and different model, and still sends the CPU to 100%.
I have some money coming in during the next week or so, and I am temptd to but a PCI wireless card, but I don't know if it's going to scrw with the CPU or not. Please help.
