Anybody help?
I just installed a new motherboard A8V with 64 x2 3800 chip 2 gb ram.
The Belkin N wirless card I had been using for over a year now can't find my signal reliably.
I am posting now with it up.
I could loose it at any time.
Some times it give me the wireless networks it finds and then wont connect. Then it can't find any.
Sometimes if I ask it to repair it will find it.
Tried to stream netflix and lost the signal.
I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this out.
Reinstalled drivers. Updated Bios. Changed slots.
All other computers and My Ipod have no problem finding a signal.
What is this machine up to?

Maybe... the card is flaky now due to moving it.

Maybe the power supply doesn't have the extra to give it to boost the signal.

Hard to know without seeing what it is doing.

I am surprised you didn't reinstall windows though with the new MB install. I've never had good luck installing a new board without a fresh windows install. That do could have something to do with it.

Did the OP install a new motherboard on an existing system?! I just assumed this was a new OS installation. That sometimes doesn’t work at all, or does but leads to lots of secondary problems. You almost always have to do a repair install w/ the installation CD to have any chance of this working.

NO Help. Finds my network, the neighbors network, the Church two doors down the street's network, sometimes.
Try to connect and then can't find any signal
Sometimes I can ask to repair and it will find a network and connect.
Usually not for long.
