I am getting the same issue wtih VIsta and i know it is the OS as i
have dual boot to windows xp and it works great. In games my network
puases for 5 seconds every minute to 2. I have tried the anti - lag
utility but still does not fix the issue. I am used the 32 bit
version of vista with the latest drivers for my PCI wireless G linksys
card (no idea on the model) v 4.1 and the drivers are listed as the
vista driver by linksys with no newer ones from microsoft. Do not
feel alone! I do think it is a linksys issue or driver issue as my
laptop with a intel card on vista works great for gaming.
