You could try Faster Ping. It may help lower your ping. It works wonders in World of Warrcaft.

Unzip and dont't bother with the setup. Go in the fasterPing_0_1_1_11 folder, run FasterPing.exe as Administrator. Just click Apply. Reboot. Done

Nope, that didn't fix it.

Do you know any other ways to fix it? It is really starting to bother me, I don't want to downgrade back to xp just because of that. I love the look and performace of 7 but at this moment I regret buying it. Please help me!

You could try using the Windows Vista drivers here and see if that helps

I've had those drivers installed already, still no fix for the latency. I really wonder what causes it, maybe a some kind of hidden program running in Windows 7?

I know I have no viruses/spywares etc because I have only downloaded Steam and Firefox (excluding that ping-program) and drivers from official sites.

I feel so frustrated.

the cpu-z's are actually a good idea, but there is an area in your user cp where you can put them. the reason that is better is the next time you have a porblem they would still be there as apposed to having to tak cpu-z pics every time. If you need help feel free to ask

I'm having similar problems. I'm trying to play Diablo II and all of my drivers are up to date. It should be running perfectly. I read somewhere, but now can't find the site, where people reported the same issue in Vista.

Basically it came down to it being a problem with Windows automatically checking for wireless networks every 60 seconds. Does your lag follow this pattern?

If so we're having the same problem.

I would also like to fix this problem, since like you said, Windows 7 is superior to XP and Vista, of course.

It seems to me we must find a way to disable Windows from automatically checking for wireless networks.

Disable WLAN AutoConfig in services. I always do.

How then do you connect to a wireless network?

Only disable it if your not using wireless.
