    Vista wirless un-reliable connections

    Ok i want to know why Windows is so slow on fixing these HUGE connection
    issues.

    I switched my machine to Vista. and when its hard connected it works fine.
    but wireless is garbage. their is no consistency. it will run good then
    slow down. speed up slow down.

    right now it thinks im not connected yet i am. i have a wireless-N linksys
    router atm

    is done this also on a wireless-n belkin extreme and with a generic
    wirless-g lyknsis router.

    All the other computers in the house work fine. and ofcourse like
    everything with vista. NONE of the WLAN that come with the wireless cards
    are compatible with vista. andwhen i turn off the wlan built into vista it
    will detect no wireless connections. someitmes i think microsoft vista and
    the playstation 3 are brothers. both are big flops. with lots of issues.

    anyhow how can you connect to wireless with vista when the wlan auto is
    disabaled?

    I second what the OP has just said above. I cannot believe that with
    Vista being touted as a serious gaming platform that this issue was not
    picked up on testing. I have the same intermittent P/L which freezes up
    my online gaming for a few seconds at regular intervals. I have warned
    friends and colleagues about this already.

    I really hope that a solution, or a third party wireless configuration
    utility will be released to solve this. It beggars belief that I have
    spent good money on this OS and my primary activity on my computer has
    had to suffer because of it.

    Some good news after all this time!

    I tried the suggestions on this page and voila! My wireless card
    decided to forget its lag (Note: I also found a setting on my Wireless
    card advaced properties through device manager where I cold manually
    set my SSID - so that could have been the clincher as well): -

    Apart from the SSID the only thing I changed was the router wireless
    settings as described in the link above (i.e. changed to 802.11b/g from
    whatever it was before that).

    Let me know how this goes for you! Good Luck.
