Alright so I decided to do some research to fix my in game lag spike issues. It was NOT my pc. It was NOT my router. So what is left??

Possibly the OS. Windows vista has this great feature of every :30 seconds or so trying to find a "better" connection to the router. So, in game, this results in a huge lag spike, then everything goes back to normal.

I searched through some articles and found one that summed up my issues. I ran the command prompt and pinged google for about a minute. In that minute, 2 times there was a 1k ms ping spike, different from the normal 30 or 32 ms average. After installing this nifty device, my games and ping are "normal" and no longer spike.

try this out if you have some of these issues.

Here is the article I read:

Here is a link to the WLAN Optimizer that has done wonders for me:

I dont know how it works, but it does. And it works great!

I have the same problem with Win 7 but i have a wired connection. It's extremely weird, and i haven't been able to find a solution to it.
