LinkSys Wireless connection fades

    While running a LinkSYS PCMCIA wireless card, I notice that after a good
    connection and troublefree internet surfing for about 10 minutes, the
    browser, Thunderbird, seems to have trouble connecting. The card reports
    there is still a connection to the internet but it all just slows down to
    a crawl.

    I pop in my WaveLan card from Lucent Technologies and there is no problem
    connecting and keeping a good internet feed. I switch back to the LinkSYS
    and the problem remains. Even a reboot doesn't help. I prefer to use the
    LinkSYS as it's a 'g' card and the WaveLan is only a 'b' but the loss
    of productivity is getting to me.

    The cyber cafe offering the wireless access point says no one is reporting
    any problems. The LinkSYS card is about 2 months old and seemed to work
    fine until a couple of days ago.

    Any thoughts?
