Hello,

Just completed a new build and decided to upgrade to windows 7 at the same time.

I used xp on the old computer and my wireless connection worked quite well.

Since I upgraded to windows 7 I've had nothing but problems. I've finally figured out how to get my computer to connect to my network, but now my wireless signal is weak (about half of what I used to get with my old computer which is located in the same place) and webpages load slower if the can load at all.

What's up with windows 7? Makes me want to go back to xp.

Appreciate any advice.

I'm using a Trendnet network card.

When I try to use the install disc it tells me that "the requested operation needs to be elevated".

When I try to use my router install disc it tells me that my internet connection could not be verified

right click on the setup file on choose "Run as Administrator"

However, I would first try to update the drivers by pointing Windows to the drivers on the CD.

do you mean you are using a Admin account or you are using "Run as Administrator"?

I guess I mean I am using an admin account. What is the difference?

I think it is suppose to protect from unwanted software installations that will change system files and settings.
