All it take is to go into networking and set up a new network using workgroup. After you finish getting it set up you can go back and delete the homegroup and disable the IPv6

Hope this helps

\Let us know if you need help with any of this

Amen to that. It's really frustrating! Now my internet gets cut even when I'm just looking for reference pictures and I can't have that when I'm working.

It doesn't seem like we'll get any help with our problem here...

Yep..Well. I don't wanna leave Windows 7-it's fast I like it. But i can't download files on 15-20kb/s, while on XP i have 70-100+kb/s. Tried lots of things-nothing helped. I'm using ethernet cable so as support said, it's not my router problem. And why there must be any problem? On the same settings i used XP-it was perfect. So it's windows 7 problem. I updated drivers for network adapter-nothing. Turned-off unused protocols-nothing. Firewall and Antivirus-turnoff (even removed antivirus)-nothing (no viruses found either). I think i'll wait for Service pack 1 or some fixes. Just tired..

I know, I've tried loads of stuff too. But I think it's really ****ty that you dont get any support. It might be tough that they don't have a clue what is wrong or something. Anyway, the strange thing is that I know people who's got the same type of computer as me and they are't experiencing any problems. There's nothing wrong with my stuff, because it worked just fine before.

Remember to update the firmware on the router, that was what killed my internet speed and always getting cutoff here and there.

I've read about this firmware update before. And i think that only works for USB users. I'm using Ethernet cable, and as support said "Ethernet connection does not depend on the driver or modem firmware. It is likely to be other causes that is causing the slow surfing". However, I'll try to use another router model and see if something will change

When you were using Win7? Or did it happen before that as well? I've never encounterd anything like this before. It started to appear just after I installed Win7. Since so many has got this problem, I find it hard to believe they all had routers who made their lives miserable. But Win7 might be picky, I don't know. But what I do know is that I want a fix.

I'll try surfing and downloading without my router and see what happens.

This happened to me after I upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate. The speed issue definitely has to do with out dated firmware and drivers for the router or network adapter. I use a USB wireless adapter by Linksys. I'm pretty happy to have my speed back and much better performace than XP Pro.

Just keep tweaking that router, you'll get there too.
