  • Vista Lagout Problem

    Ok, heres the problem:
    Anytime I play ANY game online (tested with my main 4: eve, NS, bf2, bf2142) I get intermittent lag spikes that give me a connection error about every 45 seconds. After about 5-10 minutes, I get disconnected because my wireless adapter just stops connecting with the internet and only sees my local network.
    I'm running a brand new copy of Vista Ultimate and using a Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB adapter and a WRT65G router. The problem started when I installed vista. I cant seem to find any literature on anyone else having similar problems, but I thought that some of you might have either come across this or can dig better than I can.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: Update:
    It seems the problem is the vista equivalent of the Wireless zero service from XP. However, its not CALLED wireless zero anymore and I cant seem to find any way to disable it. If anyone can figure it out, let me know plz.

        running as administrator has no effect.
        wireless zero is a process that runs under windows xp to automatically detect and configure wireless network setups. basically, it pauses connection on your active network every 60 seconds to scan for new/more optimal wireless networks in range. the only way to fix it in windows xp is to use third party software, such as the linksys EasyLink Advisor and disable the wireless zero process. Unfortunately, microsoft playes hide and seek with vista to make it more "user friendly" and there is no third party software available from linksys yet to correct the issue. So i'm simply looking for somebody brighter than me to find an alternate solution.

            I believe he is talking about "Wireless Zero Configuration" service. If you go into the services snap in you will probably see it.

              Yup. It's been given the old "vanishing act" in vista and cant be disabled. Luckily, I came across a fix which can be found here.

                Also, test that router and make sure you aren't experiencing packet loss. Just a thought.
