okay i got winVista and i do NOT see any hint of wzc on my computer at all. but ONLY on my home wireless network, i lag hard and about the ping spikes - my ping goes from average 20-50 to 300-600 and stays for a long time until it does a negative spike having normal ping for like 3 seconds and then skyrocketing again. this does not happen on any other wireless network or on cable. besides - it started happening on another laptop quite a while ago, and when i used my own it did also. but the pc linked to the router does not have this problem. but now the other laptop broke down and i cant test the net on that one.
just an example: i open CS 1.6. i check the servers. i might see some good pings (20-40), but when i refresh the list - they just go up to 400 and stay unstable. if i connect to one of the servers i get the issue described above. BUT when i close CS 1.6, I LOSE NETWORK CONNECTION ENTIRELY FOR ABOUT 15 SECONDS! hELP '?

Hello,

If you are able to achieve this exact issue on multiple computers it might be the wireless router after all?

This explains the change in WZC for Vista and 7:

After i followed your steps, i still get ping spikes. Why is that? Also, does the distance between your computer and the router matter to the connection of the internet?
