Also, i need to know if you are running any type of firewalls... like norton 360, internet security, ect.
on either or computers....

and we may need to do some other things as well with the router.

I like to set u your network first between both computers first. Make sure they are working.. and then lets see if the internet still drops, if it still drops and your able to network, we can actually do process of elimiation and more then likely be the router...

but your saying the router was working with xp... so we may have to check your windows 7 settings.


What i need to know is exactly how you want your nextwork... do you want sharing.. printers or you just want internet only?

Okay, so it only drops on the Windows 7 machine correct?

and is that hardwired into the router or wireless?

do you work on alot of window 7 computers with this router? Or were they previous versions..... I know the os just came out.

OH NO PROBLEM. I NEED TO CLOSE THIS THREAD... I JUST DONT KNOW HOW *LOL*

i am glad that i worked for you man...

enjoy your new windows 7 but if you decide to use windows 7 on the other computer and want to use homegroup, you have to turn on ipv6, just for future reference.

I had one W7 system on a BEFSR41. All in all I've had everything from Linux, W2K, WXP, Vista, one W7 system and some stuff with embedded IP stacks.

The BEFSR41 had issues with DHCP. I remember having to reboot the router to get it recovered.

I'tll be interesting to see how stable his connections are after switching to static IP.
