i was running my wireless adapter for like one years and then when i bought my 4870x2 last 2 months..

i started to notice internet cuts out everytime and then...
i open the case and i put my hand on the wireless adapter and i saw it unussualy hot!

i moved the adapter to a diffirant slot in the mobo away from the 4870x2..
but i still get this net issue...

do you think the 4870x2 dameged my adapter?
do i have to change my adapter?

thanks

It could be that it is starting to go bad on you. Or maybe you hit it accidentally damaging it. Is it plugged in securely? Have you tried resetting your connection or setting up a new network with your router?

Run the system without the 4870x2, and see if it still gets hot. If there is no temp differences with the 4870x2 removed, then it is a failing wireless card.

If you do notice a temp difference, then plug the 4870x2 in and use Rivatuner or another program to raise the fan speed.

If after this, you still have difficulties, than just buy a new wireless card, shouldn't be more than 20$.

Well can you move you computer to the same room with the router? Connect directly to the router with the proper cable instead of going wireless. If the connection is still slow, then your router may be the culprit. If the connection is normal, then you know it is your wireless card.

unplug router and modem for like 1 mins, plug modem back in, wait like 30 sec, then plug in router... sometimes this works and it can fix problems in the network....
