Wireless Problem
Having a strange problem with my wireless adapter(Broadcom 802.11g Network
Adapter). Ever since upgrading to Vista, my signal strength is very Poor.
Under XP, I allways had a full signal. This also effects download speed
dramatically. Any Ideas?

I also noticed, if I disable and then re-enable the adapter, I initially get
full signal(5 out of 5 bars). Then after a couple of minutes, it returns to
poor (1 out of 5 bars)

Thanks.

Re: Wireless Problem
Have you looked for an updated Vista driver from the manufacturer's website?

Re: Wireless Problem
The manufacturer (Broadcom) says they do not support the product since it is
sold integrated, contact HP for support. HP says they do not support a Vista
upgrade.

Do I have any options?
