Nope, no experience and no idea if that'd even fix it. However, a
common quick fix for any notebook of any kind that has problems with
built in wifi is to get a cheap-ish, but known to work usb wifi
adapter. Yea, you have to have a little usb stick poking out, but
that should work if you have the time to get one.

Mplayer is just so much better than xine ;)
