I have, until recently, avoided wireless networking because I didn't want to have to deal with possible signal strength issues, especially while gaming. Anyway, I recently acquired a wireless router, and I started experiencing the dreaded 60 second Vista lag issue. I tried fiddling a lot with wireless router settings, drivers, etc. I started cursing a little . . . Then finally I did a search online, and apparently (lol), I'm not alone. That's an understatement. Anyway, I've run across two programs. One is called Wlan Optimizer, and the other is called Vista Anti-Lag. I haven't tried Vista Anti-Lag since Wlan Optimizer appears to do what I want. Edit: Vista Anti-Lag doesn't appear to have the option to bootup/start with Vista 64 bit edition. Anyway, so far, so good. http://www.martin-majowski.de/wlanoptimizer/ http://www.wlanbook.com/vista-wifi-60-second-lag-problem/ I suppose this is a general hardware issue, but I figure people who play PC online games might be interested (or those who stream stuff constantly). If there's a better solution out there, I'm quite interested (feel free to tell me).
