Haven't had that happen to me.. Are you sure its not your WiFi itself, rather then windows? Could even be the driver just doesn't work properly in Windows 7.

I only hope it's not because Windows 7 has some really big problems.
please explain.
Most business wait until the first Service Pack to come out before making the OS jump. Since Windows 7 is not really having any problems, I bet it is just a way to get them to "feel better" and make the jump to Windows 7 with a Service Pack out.

Quite a number of businesses are still running XP...even though Vista has had 2 service packs.

That'd be over a year from Windows 7's final release in Oct. 2009.. Since when is 1 year and 2 months quick for a company to release something?

There's word that Vista will be seeing an SP3 probably around the time SP1 is ready for 7.

It was 11 months for Windows XP and took 13 months for Windows Vista. So, nothing out of the ordinary here.

Is it just me or has anyone else only had 8 updates to 7? This is just for 7, not office or drivers.

There have not been many updates at all. Of course, to be fair, Microsoft only releases standard patches once per month.. Therefore, we have only had 3 patch Tuesdays (2nd Tuesday of the month), since the product released.
