    Hello everyone. I have one hp tx1320us and a sony vaio laptops. They both have the wirelss draft n card, but the hp has one from Broadcom. My problem is that the hp after being on for about two or three hours, the internet connection starts becoming slow (very slow). I go to speakeasy and run some connection tests, and the results vary from 26k to 54k; my printer icon (lan printer) starts to disconnect and connect back also. The problem is I have a cable modem running at 7mpbs. I go to speakeasy again, but on the sony, and my full connection speed is there along with my desktop pc via ethernet.

    After googling, I have discovered that the broadcom draft n cards are no good. Now, is there a possibility of swapping out the card with something else out there? Or is there something that can be done to fix it?

    Also, after a reboot, the connection is back to normal and at full speed; the printer icon is also consistent. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
