Any ideas? TIA
I had a similar problem. It turned out my router was not working with Windows 7 OR my Intel WiFi Link 1000 adapter. I think it was Windows 7. You would think anything compatible with Vista would work, but maybe not in this case.
Are you having trouble with the wireless connectivity or wired?
I had a WRT54GS. It didn't work and Linksys has a list of Windows 7 compatible routers on their site. I got one of those and....sure enough....it works great.
