Buying a new USB/PC Card wireless adapter? O:-)

Good suggestion - a while ago I swapped it out with an Intel 2200 wifi card and the BIOS rejected it/didn't detect a wifi card, but haven't done the usb/pc card method yet.  I hate using extra hardware that duplicates the function of existing hardware, but may not have much choice if I want faster rates.

Sorry, that chipset seems to be a bit problematic.

However, you can load a LiveCD for any recent distribution that bundles
the most updated kernel (2.6.39.x?) and b43 legacy drivers to see if you
see any improvement.

I'll give this a shot at some point.  Last year when I researched this issue, reports were that the 2.6.32 kernel ran the b43 module better.  That has turned out not to be the case so far.

Thanks for your help.
