After I installed windows and installed the network adapter driver, my internet was just fine.
After I installed that driver for my GFX card, my internet plunged into the depths of [bleep]. Again. I've had inconsistency problems with my internet for a very very long time. Every minute or two the internet would lag out and break for 2-3 seconds while playing all online games; at random hours of the day the internet speed would drop to and fluctuate between 0 & 0.000000000001 kb/s - without a change in display in the systray or network settings - for a random extended period of time; additionally, whenever I've tried to diagnose and repair (a million times), I always got a vague answer to do a power cycle and nothing got fixed, or some other vague message about not being able to connect to the primary DNS server.
An online game I've been anticipating the release to play with many friends is coming out in less than a week, and I would really like to have decent internet, like the quality Linksys advertises Wireless N has.
My wireless adapter is a WMP600N, router is WRT160N (V3), and ISP is roadrunner.
