Broken wifi card?

Hello :)
I have a laptop with the bigfoot killer n1103 installed. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bigfoot-networks-Killer-Wireless-N-1103-/170865251642
I got my computer about a year ago and since i got it, i have had a huge problem with the n1103 wifi card. I works fine for about 30-60 seconds, and then it stops getting any data(i get the yellow exclamation mark - limited connection).. to fix it i have to turn my wifi on and off.. it also stops getting data(limited connection) if i do demanding things as watching hd youtube videos or downloading..
I contacted killer gaming, and they said that i should get my card replaced - i did this, and put in the new card today, and the problem is still there..
I have tried a lot of diffrent softwares and different settings but nothing seems to work .
I have spend a year trying to get this to work and i am going insane..
Can you help me?
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz
16,0 GB ram
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 - nvidia 680 m
Thanks in advance!

  1. I had a OLD USB one that did the same turns out a capacitor had gone(hanging off), and have you tried a different Wi-Fi card? Different brand, and have you uninstalled drivers - Rebooted - then re installed the drivers?

  4. You on Windows 7 64bit?

    if so remove current driver installed and try this one. http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDetails/Product/alienware-m14x?driverId=2J8N4&fileid=2912891019

    There is very little on this card. even their website doesn't help.

    I'm at a loss here Sorry.

    Hope some one else can help you.

    OH OH are the antenna cables plugged in securely?
  5. Thanks for the quick answers!
    I have been thinking about going for the Intel card(the one one the comparison you linked) for some time now, but it confuses me that I really have to go for a different wifi card after trying to fix the problem for about a year.. It must be fixable, since the card is new and works for many others :/
    I am running win 8 64 bit and I have tried the dell drivers before, but with no luck :(
    I have checked the antennas several times and I don't se a problem there, it is really odd..
  6. Arhh Win 8

    Are you sure it's Win8 compatible? it may just be incompatible my 3870X2 is not compatible with Window s7 64bit but it is with 32bit weird!

    I normally stick with what i know to avoid things like that and I never had Laptop so I only use PCI(e) wifi cards TP-Link and Netgear
