The "Connection Wizard" states that the laptop must be within 10 feet of the router in order to work reliably. Is that an official statement from Verizon on the wireless capability of the FIOS supplied router?
The router has flaws in its wireless capabilities, as far as I can tell. My previous router, Linksys, was rock solid. My laptop had continuous wireless connectivity from about 30 ft awa. This FIOS router is suspect at best. Neither my laptop nor my desktop can maintain a reliable connection to it. Bother are within 30 ft. In addition, I've tried multiple wireless cards in my desktop.
My problem is staying connected...it doesn't stay connected for very long I have to constantly reload the pages and hope that I can check my mail and respond to it. My desktop works great and it is alot faster than DSL.
