Re: Belkin Wireless G Plus PCI card

I'm almost 100% confident the problem is with the card and not the
router. I use the laptop and wifi connection both at home and at the
office which both use different routers: one a DLINK router (office)
and the other Netgear (home).

I don't have any experience with that card itself, but have you verified
if the problem is in your laptop wireless card and not your wireless
router?  By that I mean, have you set up roaming and seen if you can can
connect to other AP's (open APs') without this problem?

There is some flakiness with the connection between my Broadcom chip and
my Netgear router, but I'm convinced the problem is in the router, not
my chip, as I do not have the problem I have with my router with any
other AP.
