Well, the results are in -----
I took it over to my son's house, set it up on his computer, and he had all of the problems I had. So, back home I went.
After resetting to factory defaults, reinstalling on my system, and spending 1.5 hours on the phone with Linksys support, reconfiguring, it appears it has a defect. If I get more than 5' away from it with wireless, it starts to get real slow and keeps dropping me.

They (Linksys)offered to e-mail me a coupon for $10 off a new one.
Instead, I gave Netgear some money, and all my problems are resolved. My laptop is now much faster in wireless mode, than when it was plugged into an ethernet port on the old Linksys router... Even the desktop is quicker plugged into the ethernet port.
Hardware, does, sometimes, break.
Other than spending the money - I'm a happy camper.....
