About two weeks ago I successfully installed a wireless connection to my Broadband service using a new Netgear WG511v2 card plugged directly into a Dell Latitiude D600 laptop. The card and router are never more than 20ft apart. As of yesterday, as soon as the wireless card is plugged in, the laptop freezes with mouse and keyboard becoming inactive. On one occasion last night out of 12 attempts a network connection was made only to crash about 2 minutes later. On every other attempt the mouse/keys froze and only sometimes unplugging the card would allow normal use to return, mostly the laptop had to be restarted.
