So after reading countless posts and googling I'll try asking here
I have windows 7 ultimate 64-bit installed, ever since I installed it I have been having problems with my wireless internet, previously I had windows vista ultimate 64-bit installed and there the wireless worked without any problems (good signal too).
Anyway since I installed 7 my internet connection kept disconnecting and when it did work it was unbearably slow.
I've managed to fix this problem.... to a point:
-I replaced the router (WRT54GL) with a WRT160Nv3
-I replaced my wireless adapter (WMP54G) with a WMP600N
this got me 2 bars of connectivity for a week or 2. But now it's back to 1 bar and I get bad disconnections from time to time again too.
It's madness, all the other computers connected to my router have recieved a noticeable increase in signal strength thanks to the new setup so this makes no sense.
I upgraded the firmware on the router to the latest WRT-DD firmware availible.
I have the latest drivers
installed for the WMP600N, I removed the program that came with it because it was interferring with windows own WLAN manager.
I have noticed by reading other posts and asking other people that this is a general problem on the 64-bit version, while on the 32-bit version the WLAN system works perfectly....
Using a wire is NOT an option unfortuneatly, so would be really nice if I can solve this.
Oh yes, I also checked under services.msc and the WLAN autoconfig is started and set to automatic
Hope somebody can help me out here.
