ok i'm running 64bit hardy heron on a hp dv6000 and i have the restricted wireless driver turned on. my problem is that very often my computer will just "hang" when trying to bring up a website. i've tried this on multiple wireless routers with the same results. i tried the ndiswrapper solution and it fixed the problem but my computer started locking up so i had to revert back to the restricted driver. can someone PLEASE help!!! thanks in advance

Having hp laptop myself and broadcom wireless adapter. I must confirm it is slow on mine as well buddy. My router is hardly 2 feet away and it shows 80% signal strength. Using ndiswrapper as the driver solution. The issue is with the drivers.
