    I notice, on my Penryn MacBook Pro, whenever I decide to download a large file, 3+ GB off the network drives, the wireless crashes about 1/2 way. It happens with any large file transfers. I couldn't even get steam to finish downloading 1 game without wifi crashing.

    Does anyone know of a different driver for the "Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter"? Wifi works great in OSX but in Vista x64, theres a few glitches.

    That sounds very bizarre. I know I've dl'd 3+ GB files before in Vista 64 on my MBP. I have to ask (sorry), you did update to BootCamp 2.1, yes?

    I have updated to 2.1. At first, when I noticed the troubles, I figured I didn't update to 2.1 (in which I didn't), but after the update, I'm still getting the same problem with wireless, however, it is less frequent, but still occurs. Very annoying when I'm in multiplayer and wifi decides to d/c.
