im using a belkin n router and an acer aspire laptop which has a broadcom 802.11n adapter. ive updated firmware and drivers for everything but nothing helps.
checked a few other forums but not much help there either.
im assuming its a windows 7 issue from all the other forums ive seen.
its driving me mad lol. cheers for any help.
What i did was under the ssid there were 4 options I changed what the other laptops are using and did another ssid and well it worked. the other laptops are running just fine and so is mine now. try that hope it helps for you.
