Windows 7: See Full Map Fails

16 Apr 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit OEM
See Full Map Fails

Previously the Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> 'See full map' function would correctly map my LAN. Recently I upgraded my wireless router, and now 'See full map' reports 'Windows cannot discover any computer or device'.

My previous setup:
* ActionTec M1000 acting as modem/router/DHCP server (IP
* LinkSys WRT54G2 acting as access point (IP
* Primary wired PC (IP via DCHP)
* Various wireless devices (IP via DHCP)

My current setup:
* ActionTec M1000 acting as modem in transparent bridge mode (no IP)
* D-Link DIR-601 acting as router/DHCP server (IP
* Primary wired PC (IP via DCHP)
* Various wireless devices (IP via DHCP)

Internet connectivity and media sharing work properly among wired and wireless devices on the network. In Windows Explorer -> Network, I can see all the devices on the network (expect of course the modem).

Anyone have a clue why 'See full map' has stopped working?

OK here's one for the book of weird...

I was reading Ultimate Router Guide: Optimize Security & Performance and downloaded NetSurveyor to check Wi-Fi channel performance. I plugged in a Wi-Fi USB adapter on my primary PC, scanned channels, reconfigured the router to a clearer channel, and removed the adapter.

Now 'See full map' works fine. It correctly identifies all devices on the network.

Clean installing W7 x86 is no problem. But 1) upgrading Vista x86 to W7 x86 fails and automatically rolls back to Vista, and 2) attempt to clean install W7 x64 results in BSOD when rebooting to finalize the process. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
