I have windows 7 and have connected to no less that 50 wireless routers.
My Work Laptop is windows 7 and connected to a linksys every day.
Maybe they are saying the linksys software isn't compatible but there is no reason to even use it.
Thanks for replying, Scott,
I ought to mention, the Linksys router we use has a speed of 2.4 GHz, 802.11b, with a data Rate of 11Mbps. Have you tried windows 7 with either this speed of router, or the model router we have?
During the telephone conversation with Linksys, they upgraded the router's firmware and removed WEP. Here is a list of routers that Linksys say are compatible with windows 7: http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/...i=&p_topview=1
This list is not comprehensive, as Linksys also said they were testing and working on all their routers to see which ones weren't compatible (for which no time scale has been allocated). I find it interesting, though, that those on the list so far, are "G" routers, which seems to point towards the router speed being the issue here.
Once again, thanks for taking the time to reply, I'd be interested to hear your views on this.
