I got a new Belkin N1 PC card to go with my new Belkin N1 wireless router. This card takes over 60 sec to figure out it's network connections when the laptop boots, way much longer than my old "b" card ever did.
Also signal strength (poor) and throughput (~39 Mbps) does not come close to advertised specs. If I run the laptop in the same room as the router I do get the 300 Mbps and fulll signal strength advertised. The best advice Belkin could give was to change the broadcast channel on the router. That didn't change anything. There are no other wireless users anywhere near me anyway.
Has anyone else had these long initialization times and poor performance with these new N wireless card/router combinations?
