    I have two legacy MN-720 cards that I am using for laptops around the house
    and have recently encountered a problem with the cards losing connection and
    showing weak signals. I've done the obvious and looked for potential sources
    of RF interferance and switching the channel, but can anyone suggest some
    other things I can do to allow my wife and children to continue to use these
    cards? I plan to move to an N router within the next month or so, but I'd
    like to keep these cards for the laptops as the used to work flawlessly!

    Hi Pete,
    What router? Have you looked for newer firmware?
    If you live in an area that is densely populated, there may be a
    large enough number of 2.4GHz routers/devices that it might be real
    tough to resolve. N has a greater range than G and may be more
    robust in that kind of situation.

    If you are in a densely populated area, consider dual band N as the
    5GHz range is not as crowded (but you will need new NICS for every
    machine that needs to connect to the 5GHz side).

    check your router logs to see if there is anything going on there as
    well.
