I hope this is the right place to post this.

While in OSX my wireless works just fine. However when in windows XP (dual boot) I am unable to stay connected. Initially the router is picked up, I connect, obtain an IP address and it shows excellent signal. For the first 3-5 minutes I am able browse websites and surf with no issues, then I get "limited or no connectivity" and lag out.

If I reboot into OSX I will again be able to connect with no issues. It would seem like a driver issue but was not sure about using drivers other than the ones installed with bootcamp. Any suggestions?

wireless card stats:

Wireless Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x8C)
Wireless Card Locale: USA
Wireless Card Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (
running Mac OS X 10.5.4 (9E17)

Thanks in advance!
