Bump. I would really like an answer. And so would the other posters, I'm betting.
I guess If you guys can't own up to your products I'll just have to pull my old broadcom out of my dead laptop and use that. I know THAT doesn't have any problems when I'm traveling or connecting to a friends network.
If it helps anyone, i have the same problem with a new hp pavilion and the intel N-2230 card won,t give me anything past 2-3 with my signal strengh bars at the bottom. I called at &t and if you have them call tech support and tell them to change yout gateway frequency to the 10th signal. They went through 1-10 and the 10th one gives me 3-4 bars and my speed test if better than ever before....
