    Hi, and welcome to the forums dale52!

    So are you having any problems with the wireless now? This doesn't sound like a support request.

    If you are trying to help others by sharing your experience, it would be a good idea to post in relevant threads where people are having problem with their BCM4312 card, instead of posting a separate thread. That would be more helpful and much appreciated.

    Let us know if you are having any problem with your card.

    Please see general forum rules and posting tips here, and enjoy your stay on the forums!
