Is my Gigabyte wireless card dying????

  1. Gigabyte GN-WP01GS PCI WLAN Card (Turbo)

    Sometime ago my Internet access has started to "go South". After a small period of time I am unable to access a new page or refresh the current page. A "restart" has commonly corrected this condition.
    I have switched from Comodo Firewall to ZoneAlarm as I have more experience with this. Little if no change.
    Watching the icons (lower right toolbar) usually shows the wireless card active. Sometimes however it does disconnect.
    I have also noticed that my speeds slow dramatically as a session goes on.
    I am able to correct both situations with a restart, a real pain in the ____.

    I am painting some rooms for the Holidays but will try to get back to the "Master" (my computer) frequently to answer any questions.

    Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.
