I am messing around with Windows 7, seeing whether it's viable to upgrade on my desktop PC. So I decided to use my laptop.

Unable to connect to my wireless router. Keeps saying there is a problem with the router and to reset the router. (Done this countless times, still not working.)

Hardware is Atheros AR5005g and the driver was installed straight away. Any other way I could get it working? Worked fine with Vista/XP and Linux.

Driver problem-o I think. Open device manager and see if theres a problem with network adapter or whatever it's called these days

There isn't, it's installed correctly.

Nice looks like an old version of Windows 7 though.

Running Win7 RTM here :)

That must be a leaked build because the windows Office (Build 7100) doesn't have that picture anywhere. I have been using it for months, and I think its amazing. It takes full advantage of my Intel I7 (8 core) Processor. Its really fast and simple, but I have noticed a problem. The USB transfer speeds are only at 2mbps and it kind of pisses me off when I try and transfer a movie off and it takes 30 mins. Other then that, it runs great and is compatibile with everything, plus the taskbar owns, and I have a slideshow on my desktop!!!

How did you fix the wireless thing? Curius.

I downloaded a more recent driver from my desktop.. Windows library has outdated versions..

Also, the version build I am using is 7600, so mine is newer than yours and means they may have possibly added these wallpapers in at a later date.

I was using 7100 and it did come with the dolls background.

Then again I also used 7000, so maybe they removed the background for one milestone? o.o

edit: Yep 7100 has the dolls background, I installed it on my buddies notebook yesterday.

I prefer it greatly over Vista. I don't know why as it seems the same.

I find it runs smoother on my laptop than Vista did and my laptop is a single-core, 1gb RAM.. Apparently it was Vista-ready ;)

I cannot wait to try it on my desktop. A shitty dual-core with only 2gb RAM :p

Vista and windows 7 are the same thing only the vista was basicly a the first version of what windows 7 was orginaly and should have never been released because of the simple fact it never really was tested and was and still is very buggy and slow . I think it was a bad coustomer move but good biz move. Windows 7 is alot faster and is a little less buggy then vista.

Vista is fine, it just lacked drivers at launch.

And compatibility with almost everything, which suprisingly they still both lack, although not as much as they did.

What freaks me out about Vista, is Microsoft had a "blue screen known issue" article... I was trying to figure out why my friend's laptop wasn't working, and came across that help article... :unsure:

Wtf.

I have yet to have a compatibility issue with Windows 7..... And, I've tested it. Using XP driver,s and running programs designed for 98,95,Windows Me, windows 2000, windows server 2003, xp, and Vista. It pwns them all.

You're obviously doing something wrong if you're frequenting a BSOD. Think I've encountered them about 5 or 6 times on computers that I own, but seen plenty of others on computer which had wrong drivers and other bullshit.
