    Hi gang,

    So I have a Lenovo N100 about a week old or so and I'm having a very weird issue.

    When I was playing F.E.A.R. a couple days ago, the connection just dropped after about 30-45 minutes of playing. When I came out to windows, and tried to open the wireless connection (from the little icon in the task bar, to see if it had dropped) I could not double-click on it to open it. It would not open. Right-click was also unresponsive. When you moused over it, though, it still showed connected although apps like AIM and FireFox also couldn't connect.

    Last night I had similar symptoms using BitTorrent. It would download for about 20-30 minutes, and then the connection would just flat drop.

    The only thing that seems to fix the problem is a reboot of the machine.

    When I propped the front of the laptop up on my watch, giving more airflow to the bottom, it seemed to go a bit longer, but still it would eventually drop out.

    I'm running on 802.11g with WPAv1 @ 54mbps. I'm thinking this may be the card overheating and shutting down but really I don't know what the heck it is.

    Has anyone experienced anything similar with this noteboook or with the Intel 3945ABG component before? Should I be sending this back to Lenovo (I sure hope not, I finally got everything installed).
