ok guys... from the get go i knew this router was going to be a pain in my rear. my father went out and bought it since the hurricanes blew our last one (regular wirelessg router..). so he brings it home and i hook it up and im sitting next to it with my laptop tryin to set it up, and its not workin... call linksys, tell me its a dead modem... NOTE: I USED TO WORK TECH SUPPORT & FIELD TECH FOR A WIRELESS INTERNET COMPANY IN METROATLANTA FOR TWO YEARS, SO I KNOW HOW TO NETWORK anyways... we get a new one, same problem... i try using a desktop, works fine. eventually my laptop connected, with limited connectivity. i can get on AIM, but no email or web. i cant even ping a domain, havent tried pingin an IP. if my lappy DOES connect it is very poor, even tho the router is in the next room. it has been working nicely for the past month or so, but lately we had some heavy rain and the power dropped and the router is acting moody again, but has had no changes. all other computers on the network work fine, just not my laptop. i have tried updating drivers etc etc and nothing... i do do some intense downloading and read that the MIMO limits bandwith, so that may be something... im about to update firmware from this site anyone have or have heard about this problem? or know how to fix it? please help me i really am stumped on this.
