    Hi Tech Guys,

    I received a new Windows 7 computer yesterday and am having major performance problems surfing and downloading from the web.

    I have 3 other boxes, XP, Vista and Windows 7 and they have no problem only the new box.

    I hardwired the box to the router and saw throughput of 40Mbps. I connected a USB network adapter to the box and was also able to get speeds of 40Mbps when I was close to the router. Being close or far from the router using the on board wireless made no difference throughput was only 250Kbps.

    I've download and installed the latest driver for the network card and upgraded to the latest firmware on the router but the problem still persists.

    The router is a Linksys WRT160N V1.0
    The network card is an Ralink RT3090 WLAN card

    The box is an Acer AX3400.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Very odd! Here is the number for Cisco: 800-553-6387 Call them and there might be a defect in your router!
