My wireless pci adapter is lynksys model wmp54gs.
Under my original configuration, the following is the output from ifconfig:
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:51223 errors:0 dropped:7114 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:53542 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:25056359 (23.8 Mb) TX bytes:4276863 (4.0 Mb)
Don't know if that is an unusually number of received dropped packages or not.
I'm going to try the following:
Remove wireless card totally
Replace graphics card
Reboot and reconfigure
Re-install wireless card and reconfigure
Maybe that will work. Also new graphics card is using nv driver needs nvidia
driver for 3d effects. Any idea how to change drivers?
