Sorry me again. I just found this out. Seems a bit odd. I have a HP zt1170 laptop sitting 1 foot away from my old Dell 8100 laptop. I only have 1 wireless card. To access BC's site I have to use my Dell. (b/c of the problem discussed in my other forum post) I noticed that my Dell was connected at a rate from 36kbs-54kbs, but when I put the card in my HP the rate dropped to 5.5kbs-11kbs. I thought that was strange seeing that they are sitting right next to each other. I'm connected thru a D-Link DI 524 router. My card is a Linksys-D. (PC guy told me its the newest avail.) Both laptops have the drivers installed using the same disk that came with the card. I've uninstalled then reinstalled the drives using the disk, on my HP. The driver icon on my taskbar says its a linksys-WPC300N. Is there anyway to tweak the system to increase the connection speed. I don't know if my HP has a hardware issue or a driver issue. It just seems odd that an older unit running the same driver and card would have such a huge advantage in speed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
