I have been having some issues with my wireless network for quite some time now, I have to use my laptop connected to my pc sharing internet because my usb wifi card has lag spikes every 10-15 seconds or so, I am unable to play games online because of it, I was wondering if there is anything that I can do to make it work better, i have a net gear router, here is what my ipconfig /all

I really don't want to leave my laptop on 24/7 to have internet, I am stressing out really bad about leaving it on, That usb wifi card works fine for surfing the web and downloading, etc but when I game most of the time I get lag spikes... Is there any way I can boost my signal? I used to be able to 192.168.0.1/ my router but now it fails to load, 192.168.1.1/ and all the others wont word either.


Is is possible to get a better signal to the usb wifi card? i get 90-100% connection all the time, very good signal just lag spikes here n there every 10-40 seconds..

To access Netgear routers the address is often (as your print out shows) 192.168.0.1 and the User name is usually admin and the Password is usually password (this should be in the router's manual which you can download from Netgear) . If the password has been changed, press the reset to return to factory defaults.

Wireless lag is inevitable compared to ethernet. But you should seek to optimise your signal by experimenting with router position and changing channels because some work better than others in different environments -- avoid interference by choosing one 5 stops from any neighbouring wifi networks.

What do I do if I can not get into my router settings? If I reset the router will I have to config everything again in order to access it?

You may have to restore your settings if you reset -- but not being able to access the router setup screens is serious.

In case the issue is actually with your computer, could you take the router round to a friend's place and try accessing it on their machine ?

The wifi card works flawlessly now that I have upgraded from windows vista 32 bit to w7 64 bit...
