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

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.
What i normally do if a thread is solved is report it as solved. That little icon to the right or the rep scale icon allow u to do this.

just to let you guys know it worked for a little while but on startup there would be a delay on connection and for a page to startup as well as when the comp. set dormant for a bit..

There is a firmware update dated back to 02, may be worth a try who knows.

Yes that thing is a relic. You could try to assign the IP's manually but it still may not work.
I guess my first post on the first page had some merit. The compatiblity list is fairly accurate I'd say as was my original analogy of the problem. I'm not sure what more I could have done other than go to the Op's house and change out the router myself. In a nutshell, if your router dosn't appear on the Win 7 compatiblity list there is little chance that it will work correctly.
