Hey bud,

Sorry I haven't been on to reply at all but it looks like everyone is helping you. Tell you the truth, I don't like those USB wireless adapters. If you still have the reciepts, and as a personal opinion, I would return the D-Link stuff, grab a Linksys WRTG54GS and get the PCI card for the computer... I think you will like it much better.

The only other alternative is not using the USB wireless adapter. I just don't see them being very dependable when gaming. I use all PCMCIA cards or PCI cards.. I've configured those USB adapters for friends and I absolutely hate them.

However, this is a personal opinion. Take it as you wish, I am just trying to save you time and more struggle trying to figure out the problem. In today's day in age, time is money and it seems like you're wasting a lot of time on this when you can just grab the best of the best.

Which computer are you having the issues with, the desktop or the laptop? First thing to check with the USB adapter, is it plugged into a USB 1.1 or USB 2.0 port? USB 1.1's max transfer rate is 12 Mbit/s shared between all ports on a first come first served basis(compared to 480 Mbit/s with USB 2.0). Since the adapter receives, in theory, 54 Mbit/s it would using all the system's bandwidth for USB 1.1, if you have any other USB 1.1 devices attached, such as a mouse, those devices are going to compete and might be causing packet loss as it's possible to run out of bandwidth.

If this issue is occuring with your laptop, are you running on battery? On my own laptop, WindowsXP, set by default in power management, scales down the power output to the wireless adapter in order to maximize battery life. This can significantly weaken my wireless connection.

Something else to take into account: most wireless routers don't transmit as far as they advertise. Also, The further away you are from the router the weaker the connection. Interference plays a big part in this. Wireless B and G uses the 2.4ghz radio frequency which is also used by many other common electronic devices... mobile phones, television, microwaves, etc.

It's definately a good/MANDATORY idea to setup an encrypted network key to keep other people off your wireless network. If you're worried about people leeching bandwidth from you, go into your router administration menu and check the active DHCP IP table, if you see a network IP that isn't assigned to one of your own computers then you do indeed have a leecher.

I have a USB adapter thats runs max 11MB/s i used it in my desktop and did this and got high 700s with Verizon DSL 3Mb/s and its stayed pretty consistant...keep in mind that i have never gamed with the wireless. If it is DSL make sure that all phones are filtered and that if there are extra phone lines that they are not filtered. I run HALO on my laptop with wireless and get no lag as long as the pings are all below 300ish.
EDIT: im currently at my little brothere doctors office and logged on there server....unsecure idiots...thats y they make the big bucks...with intel spped test i get a max of 2Mb/s and an avg of 1.7Mb/s...i want theses speeds at home......last time i was here i logged into there router and shutdown there server...figure id get someone a few bucks....lol

Every USB adapter I have tried has given trouble...they would often give the dips and spikes like you are having. They always came with the routers and it was obvious why...they were junk. A PCI wireless card can be picked up for $30 any where...even wall mart. Though you may get it for 10-15 bucks on line.

Also, don't enable that encryption stuff...you want to set it to filter MAC addresses. The WEP security will slow your network even more and more than likely some one can still leech an internet connection off of you...with out even trying or wanting too in some cases. If you only allow certain MAC addressess to access the router then your as good as you are going to get. MAC addresses can be found by getting a comand promt window open and typing /ipconfig/all. Then simply plug the numbers for all machines you want to connect to the router into the MAC address filtering page in the router config.

but any way...I agree, ditch that USB thing. You could even sell it on eBay for a few bucks as lots of people like them

I dont want to cause a conflict but the above information is very inaccurate. Encrypting your wifi network traffic will slow it down some, however no one can "accidentally" enter a 26 character long hexidecimal password. If someone wants to leech off your connection and knows how, MAC filtering is easier to defeat than WEP. If you want a level of security that will actually amount to something against someone who knows what they're doing you'll need to enable WPA encryption.
