    Since I started to run Windows 7 I have been having trouble connecting to a linksys network. So far my only solution has been using it as a wired connection. The only connection I can work easily is DMax (Internet Provider from Puerto Rico) and their wireless routers.

    Is there anyone else having this problem?
    Those anyone know is there's an update coming up for this?

    If anyone has been able to connect wirelessly to a linksys network please let me know how you did it :eek:

    Thank you :D

    @ Zigzag - I have a WEP connection that seems to be running alright, the one I was trying to connect it was a WPA changed it to WEP and nothing now at my house my connection it's WEP but doesn't work :s (unless I'm wired), I'm running a 32bit.

    @ Mass - Gonna try that see what happens.

    So far this is the most frustrating thing I'm having with Win7

    Yeah well so far the update they had didn't work... and I tried connecting again to my home connection but it says that is not secure enough to connect to it >.> I changed the settings and nothing, so far it seems I'm stuck with the wire.

    On Friday or Saturday last week I was told that drivers for Linksys WUSB600N adapter would be available in 5 or 6 days. I am assuming that this may also be true for Linksys WRT160N.
    Can anybody confirm either or both statements or shed any further light on them?
