Friend just bought a laptop and a router, I suggested going with linksys since I use their routers and they generally seem to work. However I'm using the old model (WRT54G [1]) and they bought the newer model with rangeboost (WRT110). I'm using Vista 64bit with no problems but I'm reading online of the majority of people having problems with Vista (and they're running Vista 64bit aswell) and this particulary router.

Can anyone confirm if the WRT110 doesn't generally work with Vista (x86 or x64) or if it's just a few people having a problem?

I mean there will always be a few people with negative comments because they don't know how to set it up. I've set up a good many routers, I'm not an expert, but I do have a good bit of experience in setting them up and securing them and what have you.

If it's not a real rampant problem and just a few select cases I'll go ahead and set it up and try my luck. However if it is a rampant problem I'll see if I can get my hands on the older WRT54G. Or should I try my luck with the new WRT54G2?



The reason I'm asking is because the stuff I read online I take with a grain of salt. If something is good you'll hear from those people maybe 5% of the time but if somethings bad you'll hear from those people 95% of the time.

Just for the sake of reference-
I did set it up and I did a bit of research and found alot of problems were with people trying to use Wireless N while other people on the network were trying to use Wireless G. It would make Wireless N the priority and kick off anybody else. I'm not sure how true this is since to avoid any trouble of the sort I just set the router to Wireless G only (my friend only has a G card anyway). Set it up and works fine. No problems to speak of.
