I assembled a new desktop PC a few weeks back and finally made the jump from XP to 7. Since then, I've had nothing but problems with the Windows 7 wireless networking.
If there's a signal or connection problem I feel nearly helpless. XP gave me many more information and configuration options at my fingertips than I feel 7 does. So much so, that I'm on the look-out for a 3rd party wireless network manager app.
I'm open to the idea that after using XP for 9 years versus 2 weeks for 7 I may be overlooking some things, but I'd consider myself a poweruser and the distinct "don't worry, we'll fix it for you" impression I get from Win 7 is extremely irritating when the options available are so nebulous.
So, is it really just me, or is Windows 7's approach to managing wireless networks truly less usable and helpful? And if so, what can I do about it?
