comment Router makes internet go slower
Well, pinging the router works fine (1 ms), but I tried with a couple of websites and got an average of around 400 ms and a couple of RTOs. What does that mean? Also, sadly I can't use the old router right now, I don't have its power cable.

comment Windows 7 black screen, may be a hardware issue
Also, I managed to run System Restore from the recovery menu you get by pressing F8 and selecting the first option, and it told me that there's a problem with one of the disks, and I should try run chkdsk /r on it. I did that, and it said it was OK.

comment Windows 7 black screen, may be a hardware issue
@martineau: I managed to boot into regular Windows (not Safe Mode) by disabling the dispay adapters (for some reason, there are two identical ones) in Safe Mode. Device Manager just says "The device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

@Matt: But will a better router, all else being equal, provide a better signal? Or would you go as far as to say that a router will be wasted if the other devices are not very good?

Well, of course I would get a router with detachable antennas.
