Taking quite a long time to reach Calgary as it's only in an envelpe.
The Gigabyte card now has real stiff competition.
My driver tweaking of the Broadcom card now gives me 216Mbps in the far bedroom (through 2 walls) in G, was 54Mbps with default.
A band at this range is @ 54Mbps, was as low as 24Mbps with default.
This is oodles better then the default drivers that broadcom send to OEM's.
I may end up keeping the Broadcom snd the wife's latitude D820, might get the gigabyte (it has 3 aerials built in already), as the i3945 refuses to hook up to A band in anything other then WEP
Must keep in touch to see how our cards do with different routers.
