      Wirless Jumping??

      I have both the CS:S and BF2 games and when I play online I tend to get a lagged performance every 2-3 mins (or so). This is quite annoying as I know it is not the line or the router. I use a Belkin 54 MB USB adapter and the strength is very good so i don't understand what exactly the problem is.
      Any help at all will be fine and thanks in advance.

      Cool Re: Wirless Jumping??

      I can only suggest that this problem is based on your wireless connection, and im sure you know this by your title.

      54mb is only WirelessB, which at best, is a slow connection. I cannot see it being a problem unless you have a great internet connection, and its maxing the wireless signal with other downloads ect.

      I would suggest you try with cables instead of wifi, and check if the problem remains.

      I would also suggest using the tcp/ip fixer, this will change MTU and fix latency issues which are required for online games, and lastly make sure your connected to a nice fast server, with a ping of below 50.

      I hope any of this is of help

      Regards

      You will never have a good gaming experience using wifi, regardless of how good the connection is.
      Always use ethernet for your gaming rig.

      I completely agree with yoda. Wireless isnt robust enough for gaming. Get a cable and enjoy your games.

      Re: Wirless Jumping??

      I trying to solve the problem myself I inadvertedly fixed the entire issue. I changed my wirles channel to 9 and now the jumping has lowered to once every 30 mins or so. I think it might be due to the cordless phone I have that is in between my adapter and the router. I just wanted to know if i lower it any further will my connection stability or quality decrease?
