It certainly sounds like you may have a driver
/hardware issue there. You
are probably even having the issue when not in games but it is not
noticeable since your system is not being stressed as much as when it is
There may be other better ways to test but this is what I can recommend off
the top of my head:
A. You disable (or better yet, uninstall and remove) the network card you
suspect is to blame and install one that is fully supported. This is
probably the easiest method.
B. Format and install a 32bit version of Vista. I know this is a pain but
it sounds like you may have been preparing yourself to do this at some point
anyway. If this does not correct the issue then you could go back to XP.
C. If you have access to another computer that runs the 64bit version of
Vista you could take the network card from your system and install it in
that computer and see if you get similar results.
I hope this helps. I know how annoying problems like this can be.
