    I've got a problem with my wireless internet. I get lag spikes every couple of minutes, so for instance if I'm playing a game online, it'll hang for a sec or two and then carry on.

    I've tried continuously pinging www.bbc.co.uk every second (using 'ping www.bbc.co.uk -t' in dos) and I get returns of between 12 and 14ms, then it will go up to around 1500ms then the next second will fall to around 900. Very weird! Any ideas why this could be happening?

    Cheers,

    If you log into your router, you can check to see what the DHCP lease time is in mins.

    If it's set to something silly like 60 mins, you need to change it to as much as you can.

    It may be that the router keeps reassigning you new IP Address'

    have you check for the latest firmware?

    Reboot your PC and when it gets into windows, click the Start Menu, select Run...and in the window that pops up, type services.msc and press enter.

    Scroll down the list and stop or disable the wireless zero config service... this may also work.

    Thanks, I'll try this tonight :)

    Out of interest, on the Linksys webpage there are various sets of drivers for each version of router v1, v2 v3 etc. How do I find out what version my router is?

    It should say on the bottom which version of the router you have.

    Right, just checked. It's v.4, the drivers I downloaded from the Linksys website were correct.

    I'm on Firmware Version : v1.05.3

    Just disabled the Wireless Zero Configuration as well. I'll restart my PC and ping bbc.co.uk and report back.

    [EDIT] Well after the restart it wouldn't allow me to connect to the net at all. So I have re-enabled it and set it to Automatic / Start.

    [EDIT2]
    If you scroll through the below, you can see how often it lags on me. It's starting to cut out without the XP wireless losing it's actual connection so could it be something from PC to router? As when I ping the router I get the same thing as below, but < 1ms then jumps to approx 800ms

    did your router come with a utility to renegotiate the speed if the wireless signal drops in strength? Is there an option to set a fixed speed as opposed to letting the wireless card select it automatically?

    do you have a program that came with your router that does the wireless config for you?

    I think Linksys have an "SES" button on the card and route. Try disabling the WZC service again, and try using that after a reboot.

    Look here first though. As it tells you how to configure SES with (or without) a SES compatible w/less card.

    Hi mate,

    If I disconnect the WZC it wont connect as that is what it is connecting by at the moment. I am not using Linksys' software to connect with.

    I do have an option to set what speed it is, but I am the only one connected to the wireless router at the moment and I thought that the setting was for transferring files across the network, not the internet?

    I've tried disabling all security and that did not solve the problem.

    I think the linksys software to use instead of WZC is called SES (or something)

    the above guide I posted should show you how to configure it.

    It does indeed.

    When I boot my PC up, it tries to connect via Linksys, however it cannot connect to the internet. I look in the 'Site 'Survey' part of the linksys software and it confirms my wireless card is connecting to my access point (router) but it cannot find the internet.

    When I ping bbc.co.uk via the router page (192.168.1.1) I get no lag spikes, only when I use dos. This indicates that there is a problem between my PC and the router???

    I will look at the guide tonight and hopefully I will have some joy :)
