Hey I'm have some very annoying connection issues with my new computer. I got a new computer about 3 weeks ago it's an HPE-500z with Windows 7 Premium and build in Wireless Card. I have an old Linksys WRT54GS router and it works swimmingly with all the other computers in the house and my xbox 360. So I stupidly went out and purchased a Netgear N-600 and that made things worse, that thing is complete garbage. It has a whole mess of problems and not to mention connection issues with my xbox 360. The problem is that the connection seems to work then sometimes it drops and stops working then it magically comes back. Along with that the signal strength seems to be sporadic as well. So I decided to update the router's firmware (7.2, I think) and I didn't notice any discernible change. Some help would be much appreciated, I'm starting to get very frustrated. I feeling there is something really simple, and I'm just not paying attention to it.
