HP and the non-functioning wireless network card in an nx6120
You know, when the HP technician tells you that your laptop's problems with wireless network speeds are caused by "the web sites you are visiting" you know its time to give up and go elsewhere.
I fire up my laptop, it sits at 54mbps then slowly falls away to 1mbps... I don't even have IE open!! I repair the connection, we're back up to 54mbps, but then it starts fading away.
The problem occurs on *three* different wireless networks.
HP takes the laptop away for 24 hours.. then sends it back saying they can't reproduce the problem. I fire up the laptop, connect to a wireless network, fire up OL or IE or Messenger or any other Web based programme, and things start falling away.
So HP take the laptop back, keep it for a week, allegedly replace the motherboard and wireless card, then send it back. I turn it on, connect to a network, immediately speed starts falling away again. I phone HP. "Its the Web sites you visit".. they say. "We can't do any more", they say.
Obviously they don't know who they're speaking to... perhaps they didn't notice the IE7 logo emblazoned on my laptop lid. Perhaps they didn't Google my name. In short, you don't tell the Queen of IE that her problems are caused by the Web sites she is visiting.
Bother this. I can't work with network speed wavering between 1 and 11mbps. So I go out and buy a Dlink DWL-G650M - I plug it in and fire it up, and I've had 108mbps ever since without a single dropout... yep, its the Web sites I visit !!!!NOT!!!!
