Hey, I'm back.

Alright, so you both are assuming that this is a bug in Windows.... Its not. Plenty of others do not have this problem; therefore it is your hardware.

We think it is the router, so is there anyway you can try another one?

Well, i Will go back home next week, and I will see if this is really hardware trouble since we use wifi at home. But surely it is not the first time I have this trouble, RC gave me this trouble as well, now noticeably, it might be x64 problem. I will reinstall win7 x86 next week

So it seems the hardware specific drivers suck. Sounds like incompatibility. Ironically, the Vista and Seven default drivers work MUCH better than the hardware specific drivers....

Lord, I recommend you try that too.
