"Wireless connection using Windows 7 was hoorible"1.0 starson by rom_75
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: My laptop never consistently connected to the internet. I had a harder time connecting to the internet through the router when I was 2 ft from it than when i was in another room of the house.
Summary: When I first hooked up it seemed to work well. I loaded that home network software that came with the router. Later I started to notice that if my laptop went into sleep mode, when I logged back in it would lose its connection to the internet. The wireless card could see the router but could not connect to the internet. I tried to use the "repair connection" function of the software multiple times with initial success then it stopped workign. It kept bringing me through the power recycle process of the router and sometimes it worked and other times it didint'. The key was correct and there was nothing that should have been interfering at this range.
I looked online and sure enough multiple people have given the same problem. On the LinkSys site they had you going through all sorts of programming steps to try and fix the problem. That may be great for someone with minimal computer lingo background but for the average user, if I can't fix it through the windows based format, I can't fix it!
Bottom line: if you have a computer science degree, nice looking product. If not, stay away.
