I recently purchased a recertified Netgear WG311 PCI Wireless Network Adapter from TigerDirect.com http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?Sku=N100-1487because my LinkSys USB adapter has become quite cranky lately, and requires several hours of cool-down time between uses (and apparently leaving it in the USB port when the computer is off allows enough power to trickle through it to prevent it from cooling down, so you have to unplug it when shutting off the computer...

Posted 12-31-2009 at 05:03 AM by CoderMan
