Wireless Network Ping Spikes

Thank you for this awesome thread. I was having the same problem (well to a lesser degree) and searched the net for a solution. I tried so many things but none of them worked until I came across this thread. My lag spikes would be 1-2 seconds every now and then in the online FPS games I play.
The solution you guys provided worked like a charm, but I was wondering if there has been a better solution over the past year? I noticed this thread is an old one. I hope you guys are still around that answered. =) If not anybody else would be apprecitated!
I made the batch file that Dan G suggested and it does what its suppose to do but when I restart, Wireless Zero Configuration doesnt start back up again... it stays "Stopped"... I am guessing from all the microsoft updates over the year since this thread was created.. it changed a bit?
WZC is set on Automatic... so whenever I run the batch file it stops it but it doesnt restart it after I reboot... forcing me to remind myself to run the START batch everytime I turn off my PC.
I could live with doing it all the time but was wondering if there has been a better solution. Thanks for the help!

I have a D-Link DWL-G510 wireless desktop card.
It comes with Airplus G Uitility which bypasses windows Wireless Zero Configuration, so you put all your settings in the utility (i.e. ssid and static IP Address etc.) and than Disable the Wireless Zero Configuration service.
This fixes the lag spikes in windows XP as it doesn't go searching for wireless connections every 30 seconds.
I installed Vista, all ok except the Dlink Utility isn't compatible with Vista, even running in compatibility mode.
Is there any 3rd party Connection managers that work with Vista ?

anyway I find that creating two desktop icons for WZC start and WZC stop works fine... I do it every now and then when I need it off and whatnot... I guess in the meantime we'll have to hassle with this... haha... I would assume they fixed the WZC thing in Windows Vista by now... only tell will tell I guess.

(you will have to rename it .vbs instead of .txt so it works!!)"

I do not get any error code - the error I get when trying to install any of the Ralink Drivers is this :
Windows was unable to install your network controller
Windows could not find driver software for your device
If you know the manufacturer of your device, you can visit its website and check the support section for driver software.
The Ralink Wire Lan Card Utility/Status is just a big black X... the Ralink utility/status ONLY works when I install the Linksys driver from my cd that came with my Linksys adapter. That is the only driver I can get it to recognize and thus the only driver I can access the internet with, for this adapter at least.

I did several things - I'm not sure what fixed it - here is what I did :
1. Installed 3rd party firmware on my router (Tomato).
2. Enabled Frame Burst and AutoBurner in the Tomato settings.
3. Replaced my Linksys adapter with a SpeedBooster adapter (same adapter, just with speedbooster).
That's it. No Ralink drivers, no anti-lag software, or anything, just used the drivers from the linksys CD. I don't know what it was, it says on the box speedboster only works with XP and 2000.. but I heard people saying they utilized their non-speedbooster router to work with their speedbooster adapter via 3rd party firmware. Maybe that's what I did (I know afterburner enables speedbooster). But I don't see how that would fix it anyway.. whatever, who cares! I'm getting excellent/very good signal with great latency!
Thanks for the help.

Please share this with everyone you can if it works for you. I have been battling between the 60 second lag spike of WZC and the memory drain of the Linksys network monitor for longer than I care to remember, and finally, it seems I have won. I will post an update after a couple of days/weeks just to make for sure that everything is as it should be, but so far NO PROBLEMS!!!!!
Hope I have been able to help some of you and happy hunting
