Hello everybody - nice forum you have here. : )
I am in search for some advice on fixing my wireless internet connection.
Before I explain the problem I will give you some information that you may need in order to help me:
Microsoft® Windows® XP Home Edition SP2
Intel® Pentium® 4 516
Cache memory 1MB
HDD size 160GB
Wireless Internet Set Up:
NETGEAR DG834G 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Router:
Firmware Version 3.01.25
NETGEAR WG111 54Mbps Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter:
Ok, so now for the problem.
The wireless internet connection runs smoothly with no problems whilst browing websites and downloading files, however whilst playing an online game (for example: counterstrike
) my internet suffers from sudden 'bursts of lag' roughly once every 60 seconds. These lag bursts cause the game to freeze momentarily (roughly 2 seconds, never more, never less). Apart from these lag bursts online games run very smoothly with no problems whatsoever.
I have recieved feedback from somebody who mentioned that the problem may lie within the WG111 USB Adapter - they said that USB Adapters often give these 'lag bursts'. This person suggested that I replace my USB Adapter with a wireless PCI Card - but I would like to be sure that this would solve the lagging problem before I purchase a PCI Card.
Thank you for reading, any response would be greatly appreciated.
