Hi Moderator (or is it Kyle !) Just a suggestion here -- but obviously people are having a whole slew of problems with various Ethernet Cards / Routers / mother board / Laptop combinations and are posting problems in various forums rather than in one place. This is just a suggestion but it could help not only individual users but also Microsoft since after gathering a decent set of data we could use Microsoft feedback to get them to sensibly have a look at the problem. I'd suggest something relatively simple in a sort of EXCEL spread sheet type of format or just text in columns 1) Router you are using 2) Computer Make (If using a purchased computer) 3) Motherboard (if you built the computer itself or can find out what mother board you are using) 4) Laptop make (if using a Laptop) 5) Installed Memory (The Memory the BIOS sees -- not the OS itself. Note this actually has had an effect with some LAN cards --some work with 3 GB but not when 4GB is installed -- don't ask me why on this one but it does happen. Wired Lan cards only -- Not PCI-Express, PCMCIA or USB==>LAN devices j.ust either the on board LAN or a LAN card attached to the main computer via an expansion slot. 6) What OS CURRENTLY using (XP/Vista X-32, Vista X-64 W7 X-32 W7-X-64 . 7) Nic Card (LAN Card ( there's another section for Wireless). 8) Driver Version reported by Device Manager on CURRENT OS. 9) Driver working OK or is there a yellow exclamation mark 10) Has this card worked on ANY OTHER OS (including Linux Distros) 11) OS used that this card worked on (preferably a Windows version even if it's Windows 98) if any 12) Driver version reported by the OS that the card worked on Now wireless cards 12) Wireless Card adapter 13) Driver version 14) Driver working OK or yellow exclamation mark 15) OS being used 16) Has this card worked on another OS 17) name of OS 18) Driver version reported by the OS that it worked on. If we could get some decent statistics on this we could find out whether the problems are confined to just a few router / NIC combinations are if there are more general issues. If users could fill this sort of thing in I can get it off to Microsoft -- but we must have decent data presented in an orderly fashion to get the best attention and quickest response from Microsoft. BTW great W7 Forums and useful --thanks.
