    Its all about the drivers/firmware and WAPs. I just reinstalled 7x64 on a bunch of laptops and they work perfectly, even nicely run software deployment.

    That perfect match is hard to find though, we have another batch that would not play nice with software deployment no matter what we did and those were newer.

    This is why I still save a little bit of hate for wireless, managed or not its still just not as fast, reliable or robust as a good old fashioned network cable.

    All our IT suites are wired. Every so often, I get a sales man saying that I should change it all over to wireless.
    When I ask why, I get some really silly answers. but the cost alone would be silly. I already HAVE the wired. Why would I want to change that to wireless for rooms full of desktops?
    We don't have laptops (count on one hand how many we have) and we don't have wireless!

    what standard are the routers? what channel are you broadcasting on? nothing else near by on the same channel? How many ipads and ipods iphones etc are connecting to the wireless at any time. all factors to consider. Plus any devices will only run at the speed of the slowest device connected to the AP.
