Hello all,

I've been finding that since I moved up to Windows 7, approx 50-75% of the time when I try to watch a recorded tv show on my notebook that it gets choppy likely due to signal strength as I stream through my DIR-825 to my laptop using a DWA-652 from my HP mediasmart Windows Home Server.  Before Windows 7, all seemed to be streaming well using XP.

The status of the wireless adapter in Windows 7 is showing 130 mpbs while the DIR-825 is showing a wireless connection status rate of between 39M and 52M (it bounces a round a bit - mostly lower than 52M) and 90% signal strength.

Here's my stats:
- Toshiba TECRA M7 w/ 4GB RAM; Windows 7 32-bit
- DIR-825 hw v.B1 and fw 2.03NA
- DWA-652 A1 running the 1.50 driver (not sure if the settings on the driver make a difference, but I haven't edited any of those settings - they're using the default)

Settings in the DIR 825:
- mixed n/g
- enabled auto channel scan
- auto 20/40
- WPA Personal; WPA2 AES
- Group key 3600
