I bought the WMP600N because Linksys and Microsoft listed it as 'compatible' for Windows 7 x64.
- unstable and weak connection
- pings to websites like google.com drops, average: 1 out of 3
- low signal, on the same spot my three years old HP-laptop with 'a build in wireless card' has full signal strength in Windows 7
- it works well under Windows XP (32 bit)
I'am convinced that drivers for the WMP600N are not ready for Window 7 x64. Linksys (or Ralink, which developed the chipset), please release a proper driver for the WMP600N!

I tried that on mine earlier and I have to say it's not yielded me any improvement, binky.
What am I missing? I'm on 32bit Win7, uninstalled/deleted the driver from the device manager, rebooted (whereupon windows kindly threw some ancient driver at the card, which I then deleted) and then installed the 188.8.131.52 Ralink driver. No difference to signal strength, I'm still getting a 54mbps at best connection to a pure 11N 5ghz Linksys gateway that's 20 feet away (albeit in another room).

Thank you for your feedback. Some additional information about my situation:
- I am using the 802.11g band
- my motherboardhas the new P55 chipset (maybe thats causing this problem...)
- I tried te latest Linksys drivers and the latest Ralink drivers (via the manual installation method)
still no luck here ...

i am also having the exact same problems!!
i also have windows 7 64 bit and the WMP600N
the router i have is a WRT54GS and the 2 points are about 30-40 feet apart
i can barely load google IF i can at all, and if i move the router 2 feet towards the WMP600N on the desk it is sitting google loads instantly
and the range of the router i know isnt a problem since i can pick it up even farther away with my laptop
when will linksys come out with 64 bit support on windows 7???
is there a fix for this yet???

Trust me - it's not that much better in 32bit.
My desktop machine is literally 20 feet from the WAG320N and I'm on one blip signal, and that's on pure .11N 5ghz wireless.
