If I set my screen resolution above 800x600 my WMP54GS Linksys adapter won't pick up an internet signal. In fact the higher I go above 800x600 the slower it gets until it receives no signal when I reach 1440x900.

I've had an nVidia 7600GS for the past two months and everything was working fine until two days ago. That is, I was flying along on the web in glorious 1440x900 widescreen until this current situation.

Could it be a power supply thing? I've updated both drivers so I don't think that's it. I'm out of ideas. Please, any thoughts are welcome...

Perhaps your 7600GS is blowing hot air on the adapter, causing it to overheat and malfunction? (higher screen res = more work for gpu = more heat, therefore less signal...?)
