        Okay, it didn't change anything. I was very optimistic though. Here's to waiting for 2k9 when TV airwaves will be phased out for TV and used for telecommunications :3

          While at University, I use wireless to connect to the internet. Every now and again, it cuts me off for a couple of seconds which means I cannot play TWJD, TWDD and sometimes TWBD 50/50 whether I lagout). This happens in any online games and I assumed it was just the way wireless is and grew to accept it.

          While playing Counter-Strike yesterday I decided to time the interval between the spikes, and it turned out they happened every 60 seconds. A bit of googling led me to realise it's actually a Windows issue. Stupidly, Windows automatically searches for new wireless networks every 60 seconds, causing these lag spikes. I've disabled it on my computer, and I am at 0.1 0.1 ploss instead of the 1.5 0.1 I'd be at before. Also, playing Counter-Strike for a few hours yesterday I experienced one single lag spike, instead of one every minute.

          How to disable in XP:
          One way around it is to use the third party wireless management software that came with your card, this isn't that ideal though as they tend to be pretty crap.
          If you want to stick with the windows software:
          It's simply a case of disabling the Wireless Zero Configuration service while you're playing. To do this, start menu -> run type in services.msc, find Wireless Zero Configuration, right click and select "Stop".
          Your wireless connection will remain connected while the service is stopped. If it disconnects (say you reboot your router w/e), you will not be able to reconnect until you restart the service.

          How to disable in Vista
          The WZC service is tacked in with the other wireless stuff in Vista, so you can't get around it by using the 3rd party software that came with your wireless card.
          Instead, use this file. Use the "Auto Off.bat" to disable the wireless config. And the "Auto On.bat" to turn it back on again. REMEMBER to turn it back on before turning your computer off, otherwise it won't connect to a wireless network next time you boot until you turn it on. You will have to run both .bat files as Administrator. Also, if you want to see what's inside them, simply right click -> edit. This is for all you paranoid of malicious code ;P.

          Anyway, hope this helps.

            What is perhaps a posibility is to create a batch file that
            - shuts down the wireless search
            - start continuum
            - starts the wireless search

            safe the batch in continuum directory

            create a shortcut of continuum and replace this one with the one on your desktop. (and use the same continuum icon for it)

            Done!
            You can call yourself a programmer now

              Seal, you don't want to start the wireless search until Continuum has closed, do I don't really get how your batch file would work.

                  I'm considering getting a wireless ethernet bridge for my Vista box to handle the problem and rid myself of batch files. Anyone have any experience with bridges?

                            Vista user's use this file. Use the "Auto Off.bat" to disable the wireless config. and auto_on.bat to enable. but since this link no longer exists im showing how to make it your self.
                            Step one: open notepad, not wordpad or microsoft word.

                            Step two:copy and paste the following,
                            @ECHO Off
                            ECHO.********************
                            ECHO Carburetor is God =]
                            ECHO.********************
                            netsh wlan set autoconfig enabled=no interface="wireless network connection"
                            ECHO.
                            ECHO.Yeah, i Pwn =]
                            ECHO.
                            PAUSE
                            CLS
                            EXIT

                            Step Three: save as Auto_On.bat make sure the extension is not .txt do this by changing the "save type" to all types.
                            CONGRATS. you made your first batch file.

                            Step four:after saving the first one and trying it to make sure it works, right click the the file and change enabled=yes to enabled=no, then resave it as Auto_Off.bat
                            CONGRATS. you made your second batch file.

                            if it does not work, it is most likely that your UAC is activated, theirs two ways by this, one:disableing it by going to start>control panel>user account>turn user account control on or off.
                            second way is by using a "runas" command in the batch which is near impossible unless u want to download programming tools but might be possible if u dont have a password, if u want to solve it this way and need help, ask me and ill see what i can do, but i choose to disable my UAC.
                            another reason this wouldnt work is if your not signed on as administrator.

                            Also another problem might be you changed the name of the wireless network connection, if this is the case just simply, input the correct name, if u need help to find it, i found it by opening command prompt and typing "netsh" then "wlan set autoconfig" it should be set as the example. if not then ill find a solution.

                            If you need any help either ask me in game or reply, ill help you as soon as possible.:grin:
