Dell 5720 Broadband Card Disconnects After 6 hours

I have a Dell E4300 laptop with a Dell 5720 broadband card. I use it to connect to my company's vpn while I'm at a client's office. I make the connection first thing in the morning and after 6hours of use. The connection drops until I reboot. I reboot and I'm able to get connected for another 15-20mins. Next day everything is good for another 6 hours.


Does Verizon throttle your network activity after 6 hours?

Re: Dell 5720 Broadband Card Disconnects After 6 hours

exactly 6 hours ? and it works again only after rebooting ?


if verizon was limiting it, then it wouldnt work after rebooting it.


it sounds like a physical limitation from the wireless card you are using in your laptop.


have you popped it out and physically handled it ? is it smoking hot?
