First of all, hello since this is my first post here ever. I recently bought a netbook and now it dual-boots on Win7 and some Linux distro. The problem I'm experiencing is whenever I need to connect to my wireless network at home I have to be nearby the router, if I try going upstairs I lose connection and network is not recognized anymore. I thought at first it was a problem with the range of the router but I booted on my Linux distro and, for my surprise, on exactly the same physical spot Win7 doesn't recognize anything, I get a 60% availability and everything works perfectly. So long story short: Win7: wireless works fine if I'm nearby the router, getting a 100% signal strength but signal is completely lost if I walk upstairs. Linux distro on the same machine: Signal strength 100% nearby the router, 50-60% upstairs. I have tried formatting everything and reinstalling everything again, I have installed the proper d.rivers of course, if not I wouldn't be able to connect at all. Maybe this is a common issue but I'm fairly new on the Windows universe, version is Win7 Ultimate. Thanks! PD: haven't tried on other places, just at home, and it's the place I have the most interest for it to work. PD2: I'm sorry I just notice there is a network section, if you could move it you'd have my thanks.
