      huge packetloss on Sky with DLink router Vista

      I recently installed Vista, and ever since my CS:S has been unplayable - every 1-2 minutes I would get huge packet loss (loss=30-80) and I would stop for about 10-20 seconds, by which time I was usually dead in the game.

      Now normally I would assume taht it's Vista doing it, but I've been getting a lot mroe dropped connections as well. I've gone through the CS:S troubleshooting guide for incompatible programs, I don't think there is anything left running and it still happens. ONly thing I can think to do is try a wired connection and see if it's my wireless setup.

      Is there possibly something going on with my router or SKY connection that would cause occasional high loss??

      Router is a D-Link DSL-G624T, wifi adaptor is a X-Micro .11G usb adaptor (it has been really good for ages in XP).

      Yes CRC/line errors, check out the Router Stas section on the front of the forum, there is advise there on how to show up your detailed stats, which will show up any errors.

      sounds like a Tier 3 issue to me. looks like your gonna need to call up and get your line sorted. But they wont do it if your not using the Sky router, so I'd suggest moving back to it sharpish, or you'll be stuck.
