Windows 7: I'm thinking of just deep 6'ing Windows 7

I don't know guys. It has been a week, and I'm just not interested in fighting over it anymore.

D-Link says it's the wireless card's fault. They can point to 5 other machines in the house running at the proper speed as their evidence.

Gigabyte says it's the routers fault because the card might not work well with D-Link routers.

Linksys says the same thing.

If the machine takes half an hour to download lecture notes to take to class it's just a $1500 doorstop minus the monitor. I can probably fetch a decent amount for the 2407wfp on ebay and just pass this box off to someone that strictly hardwires their machines.

Apple's getting a call in the AM. I'll dual boot xp.

I'm done with 7.

Updating hardware is standard procedure when moving up to a new Op system. I suggest you try upgrading the wireless adaptor to one of the newer D-link versions. This can also be a router problem despite having the firmware updated there can still be problems because the network stack has been changed considerably with Win 7. Or you can just stick to your complain and blame topic if you wish.

It really looks like this adapter, Gigabyte GN-WP01GS is a crap card when it comes to connection speeds and 64-bit support.

While I can understand your frustrations, it seems like returning this card for something that doesn't seem to have notoriously bad reviews and speed issues might be a better fix.

Doesn't seem to have helped at all

Speedtest 1.33Mbps

drivers are current

I have entirely too much schoolwork to run through + This is the most robust and capable machine in my home. Fastest CPU, most storage space, most expensive mobo/ram, the whole gamut

When I was running Vista x86 the wireless networking on this machine was very impressive. Since moving to Windows 7 it's just unusable.
Ummmm... this might be a silly question but... You're on wireless ... ya?
Are there any other machines connecting to that hub in your house?

Wireless hubs have a nasty limitation... the 54mbps (or so) max speed is actually shared by eveyone connected. 2 machines == 26mbps each 4 machines == 13 etc.

Same with your internet connection... 1 machine == 6mbps, 2 machines == 3 each, 4 machines == 1.5, etc.

(When all machines are active, of course.)

So how much stuff do you actually have going on there?
Like is your sister downloading Avatar or something?

D-Link is correct. Apple does not use D-Link in it's cards, and yet they are compatible. If the components are made to spec it should not matter where you get your components from as long as it says IEEE 802.11 somewhere.

This is very good software if you want to really give good detail on your computer specs:

Just download the lite version....

Unfortunately none of this advice is resulting in a bump in speed.

I'm willing to attempt 1 more wireless card before I dump the machine + OS and just grab a Mac Pro or iMac.

What wireless card should I purchase to operate with a D-Link DIR-615 router?

I'm not about to change routers, as this router provides 5 computers that will simultaneously achieve 5.9 Mbps down on a 6 Mbps connection. The only machine not achieving proper speeds is quite probably the nicest machine in the house.

Suggest an adapter sevenforums. This is obviously the right place to ask, and I'm not interested in browsing 80 different threads discussing adapters. I want advice directly from someone utilizing a wireless card @ proper capacity.

I've become entirely too frustrated looking at this beautiful machine i've built operating in internet limp-mode. It pulls at my soul in all the wrong ways.

please would be nice....

to answer your question, im using a belkin FD8053UK v3 on a Dlink 2640R router and i get the full 6 meg of my connection.... but i would only recommend it if your willing to take the time to play with the drivers, the default ones dont work on 7 X64 but there is a workaround

i always think the best way to go, is use the same manufacturor as your router, that saves messing around with companies blaming each other, so go Dlink

Do you care where you buy from? For example, is Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more! ok? And do you want an internal PCI card, or can you get by with a USB adapter?

PCI would be preferred. Any reputable online retailer is fine.

I did not mean to be rude when I asked for a suggestion. It was intended to sound submissive.
