Hi, I had my NEC Versa E6300 direct from NEC,
It does sound like it could be a driver issue or the card itself. You will never get anyone to admit they are to blame. Realteks make good stuff and seem quite reliable. My guess would be the driver as your symptoms are what I have seen before on other brands with driver issues. If its under warranty scream and holler (nicely) and see if they will take it back to "fix" it. Generally they can't and you can get it replaced or refunded. If not you can try an earlier driver as well as keeping an eye out for new ones. Sometimes they fix something minor and cause something major like this. If no driver fixes then you can try replacing the wifi card. See what other brands came with your machine such as an Athera.
Fairly cheap to find on places like ebay and installs much like a ram module. No easy fix for this one I'm afraid.
