  • Vista SP2

    Since I didn't really want to hijack the Win7 RC thread I guess I'll make another.

    SP2 is on MSDN right now and RTM (release to manufacture)

    After doing some hunting around I found this site but I have no idea how legit the download is, but I guess I will when it finishes. Looks pretty good at first glance. Edit: that was a quick torrent!

    I'm pretty excited about SP2 as I'm hoping it will fix the only issue I currently have with vista, the wireless connection.

    Re: Vista SP2

    There was a thread I think last week about it being RTM. I am looking forward to it too, but it is supposed to release to the normal update early next month.

      I'm too lazy to dig up my own thread, so this one is as good as any to continue the discussion.

      @Reaper,

      Do tell us if the SP2 RTM fixes the wireless issue. And I hope they release it soon. I don't want to wait another 7 months.

        Forgive my ignorance, but what is the wireless issue you guys are talking about?

          With some wireless cards/onboard chipsets (since some users don't seem to be affected), Vista will search for a new wireless network every 10 seconds to 5 minutes. Thus causing us lag spikes and a overall choppy online gaming experience.

            Woah, you'd think that'd be a major bug fix they'd push out pretty quickly!

              Well its not a bug, that is what it was designed to do. Vista looks for more favorable internet connections every 20 seconds or so, they just needed enough feedback to finally get it changed.

                And someone in the design/dev department didn't think one extra step further: is this going to affect a portion of Windows users? (like gamers)

                  The interesting part is that XP did the same thing if you let it. To turn it off, you had to disable the wireless zero process from running. In vista, microsoft removed the user's ability to negate that process. I fixed it by getting a wireless-N setup. worked like a champ after that, not to mention the fact that I can be on my laptop 2 blocks from my house and still be on my own network.
