    GPU blocking network adapter

    I recently got a 2 slot card but seems to be 1 cm away from my wireless network adpater. When booting up, everything runs fine except I'm unable to connect to the internet. I'm wondering if the GPU is blocking the adapter. The GPU is running at 30 celcius

    So what happens when you pull the GPU? Do you have an old one or integrated to test and see if a difference? Don't think that temp should be hurting anything. Would think more of a cross-signal thing if it is the actual problem.

    Try swapping positions. If the Wifi card does not have an external antenna. Yes the shielding on the GPU card, can cause problems.

My Win8 is working fine, but the XP that I connect to is in the ditch due to Comodo. The only way I can get things working is to prevent Comodo from running; not even "Disable" works.
