D-Link is very variable when it comes to quality, some products work fine others not. My personal experience with them is bad in many cases.
I would RMA the card and get a Intel one instead.

I would agree with the second post. On the other hand would there be any new drivers or would it be on the Router side?

If you think it's your wireless NIC.... ping your router or switch... not a WAN site.

Get rid of the card. You won't get gigabit speeds from it because it's PCI, not PCI Express. I'd recommend the intel Pro/1000 line. I just bought one from Amazon for $30.

If you don't want to do that then I'd wonder if you continually have this problem from this NIC. Many things can cause latency to internet sites, chiefly the fact that there is a very good chance your traffic isn't going the same way there and back. You can't assume that your packets are taking the optimal route, especially since network owners almost always prefer to route over their own infrastructure as much as possible since it's cheaper.

but but PCI 1X is 133MB isnt it wink.gif

Small spikes are normals, some packets may have taken diifernt routes due to congestion, is it casuing issues? Which games to where?
