[Wireless] Linksys befw11s4 V4 and Vista trouble!


I have been using this router for a couple of years with 3 wired XP machines
with not too much trouble. I just got a new laptop (Acer) with vista and have
had nothing but trouble. I cannot get a good connection if I turn on
encryption. I get 1 maybe 2 bars. If I turn it off and connect back I get a
full signal. I tried upgrading the firmware from 1.50 to 1.52 and that fails.
What are my options here? For those of you who say trash this router which
one should I get?

Thanks,

Brian

for routers that work with Vista.

I'm currently using a D-Link DGL 4500 which I really like alot.
Previously was using a D-Link DIR-655 which I also like. The 4500
supports draft 802.11N in the 5 GHz band which is a real plus for
me.

I have a Linksys WRT350N 802.11n router and works great for me, and I
upgraded from a Linksys WRT54G router, also good, but I needed more speed on
my massive network.
