Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook ?

Wireless reception has degraded almost completely

\015 I have used my hp dv4000 for 3 years with a WRT54gs wireless router and Comcast. I use it upstairs from the router and have had "very good" reception until this spring. Now I'm getting "very low." My other laptop, a dv6500, still has "excellent" reception with the same set-up. Would it perhaps help if I got a new laptop card for the dv4000?\015

No Wireless signal on Presario 2170US Model #DK587AOptions I added a wireless card to my Presario.

My C700 seems to be overheating after about 30 minutes of use. This only happens in certain circumstances (for example, it works fine at my house, but doesn't work at my friends house). Could there be an environmental issue causing this? Both houses are air conditioned, the computer is in a similiar location and the only difference is that at my friends house a wireless USB stick is being used to access the internet.
