Why does my Wi-Fi signal lose strength when I start using it?

I bought a new Broadcom network adapter. Since then, whenever I play a game, watch a movie or even browse the Internet my Internet signal becomes extremely weak – almost instantly.

I know its not my ISP because I have several computers and they work well. I know its not the router because this happens no matter how close I am to my Wi-Fi hot spot.

So what the heck would cause this? I’ve searched but can seem to find any help. I have updated my drivers and made sure I have no viruses.

    The problem could be your adapter may not have the latest latest firmware update try to find the latest firmware update and install it for your adapter and i think that should help i had the same problem but with my toshiba realtek wireless card.
