Wireless problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I don't know what's going on really and why im having problems with games at the speeds im reserving. Iv just bought a USB wireless ultimate nextG, iv connected it with a netcomb 150 which im using it to connect to 2 computers and a laptop, i have both of the computers connected by cable using the lan ports. and the lap top wirelessly. Iv got a yazi 24 gain areal attached to it with it im getting full signal.

iv checked the speeds im getting 2 to 3mb per second. with an up load speed of 3 1.5mb persecond. my brother has checked this and he recons im getting about the some speeds as a ADSL conection.

So naturally im hopeful that i can play a online game with out any difficulty, in my old house i was getting only 1mb's on cable, so now im getting 2+mbs,

So i tested out on left for dead 2. First off no problems im playing the game every thing is running smoothly. Then for no apparent reason, it starts to get really laggy For a 3-6 seconds and then suddenly stops. seems to happen every 2 minutes more or less. And the strange thing is the latency meter is not reading a ping spike.

SO naturally im feeling pretty stumped and defeated,


Can you guy's suggest how i can get this wireless system to work with gaming. Which it supposed to, People have assured me it the fastest and best on the market.

Im also running the game off a old Intel Pentium D with 6800 graphic’s card. and iv not had any problems running on cable.

Can you guy's suggest how i can get this wireless system to work well enough gaming. Which it supposed to, People have assured me it the fastest and best on the market. would getting network cards help?.

Im also running the game off a old Intel Pentium D with 6800 graphic’s card. Iv had absoultly no problems playing this game on cable at my old place.

Wireless signal strength changes about 1000 times every second. Where possible, I STRONGLY recommend against using it for anything that will be bandwidth intensive, or latency intolerant (gaming). Even if you can "benchmark" wireless bandwidth at a gorzillion terabytes a second, I still wouldn't use it for gaming since it's not a steady connection, regardless of your signal strength. It's just the nature of the beast.

EDIT - got a reminder on another thread - try changing channels on the router. That may help somewhat.
