New network card, using the Ralink RT2870 driver (received from the AUR), and a new usb 2.0 pci adaptor from fry's electronics, fixed my network. It is now at 100%, don't know how I even managed with the other network card. Everything seems to be as it should, at the moment. New mouse + mousepad as well. Also, did some tmpfs modifications in /etc/fstab.
The wireless driver install for archlinux couldn't have been easier, didn't even use the driver cd. All I did was a lsusb to see what driver it used, then got the driver from the AUR, and added it to the MODULES section in /etc/rc.conf and rebooted.

This is pretty much out of my control, it's a problem with the wireless card code base (802.11) calling a country and a datalink not responding. The only way to even see what happened is DMESG. Here's the part that shows the error.

Now I don't get too frequent cutouts on my wireless internet connection. I even edited my timeouts to be a little longer. Arch linux rox my sox.
