Yea, Vista sucks at taking up the slack of hardware manufacturers who would rather you buy new hardware(duh, or is that big DUH!) instead of giving a bonus to their software writer(he's on a salary).
Are you serious!? You don't use a driver in Windows for a router. It's simple networking! You plug it in and configure it.

I believe he's referring to the manufacturer's software for configuring it. But I believe Vista will allow you to do all that, the manufacturer's software is not necessary, only optional. Vista has support for encryption and the likes built in.

Bull****. It's Microsoft's fault and you know it. I can no longer plug my toaster in thanks to Vista, and I want MS to compensate me!

I dloaded the newest version that is supposed to work with vista business and I am doing all the updates and I hope this works. If not, they will have to buy Xp pro or a new laptop with XP on it. I remember when XP came out it was like WOW, everything works well, hardly any driver issues etc. They need SP2 for Vista or something and the manufacturers need to start cranking out some good updates. Sorry for the vent but

Networking is my weakest point as far as computers go and I was told the firmware is the issue.

Nekro, you even tried to solve the problem for me long ago, the firmware you suggested was for the model just above mine that would have worked. I'd be more than happy to take Networking 101, are you teaching it?

Anyway, again, I was being sarcastic. The fault was DLink's and the new router gives me the full speed I'd been paying for since they upgraded the line speeds here whereas the old one didn't.
You can't upgrade your router's firmware via a web service? That is truly a terribad router than. (I don't believe that is the case, I've never seen a router without a web service to configure it).

And yes, it was a cheap router to begin with which is another reason it was "necessary" to purchase a new one.
Ah, but that still isn't Microsoft's fault that your router apparently doesn't conform to standards. If it did, it would work.

Routers should work on any os.
