Hey, just wondering if this problem is hardware or something else. My wireless adapter is a cheap PCI adapter that I got from Microcenter for $5, hawking brand. It was great for about 3 days until all of a sudden it started to crap out. It says I have excellent signal strength and says that I'm Tx'ing at 54mbps however pages don't load at all or extremely delayed, like its only loading from cookies. Also sometimes(once every 15 min or so) is just looses connection for about 30 seconds, then reconnects. Anyway Im wondering why it was perfect for a while, and now is acting up.

thanks!

Do you have a static IP? What is your DNS IP?

I had the same symtoms and it was a bad DNS in my NIC properties. Are you using DHCP or a static IP address?
