Vista Wireless Network Lag/Spikes

So basically, I get random spikes and lag every 30 to 60 seconds (sometimes even less) on a wireless connection in Vista.

Does anyone know how to fix it? Online gaming is almost impossible, especially in WC3 (apparently it's a lag-fest when I host)

Apparently, Windows looks for a new access point every 30-60 seconds, thus giving me the lag/spikes.

I got up to turning off WLAN AutoConfig in the above link, but couldn't find where to manually input my SSID.


P.S. I also tried Vista Anti-Lag, but it doesn't work on my computer.
P.S.S. This is similiar to the Windows Zero Config problem on XP, except you could turn it off.

Hi yee,

I am a little confused -- do you mean to say that you started up your computer, got an internet connect, then proceeded to shut off WLAN Autoconfig, and then still experienced the lag spikes?

Or did you do the above steps and found you no longer experienced the lag spikes, and now wish to shut off WLAN Autoconfig permanently?
