5100 AGN hardly ever connecting to router


I have problem with connection to my router. I have Linksys WRT54GL, it has newest tomato firmware. I tried nearly everything. Updating router firmware, wi-fi card drivers. Other devices can access my wi-fi network without any problem (Smartphone, Kindle, notebook). Even my laptop under Linux has no problem with connection. But under Windows 7(64bit) I need to try many times (sometimes 10 or 20) before my laptop will get connected. On newest drivers from Intel it was not possible to connect at all. The wi-fi channel is no used by anyone else. I checked it.

But the problem started some time ago. Before that, on the same configuration, everything was ok.

I also tried to change wireless card configuration- mobility(to minimum), tx power (higest), etc mode (now is g)

I'm using WPA 2 AES encryption.

Does anybody have any idea ?

Now the only thing I'm having in my mind is problem with driver but I've tried the newest one.
