Windows 7: spikey wireless gaming

spikey wireless gaming

yes i used the search function, but none of the threads had any answers i wanted.

whenever i play any online game (Warcraft III, CS, WoW) i get periodic lag spikes every 1-2 minutes. I use to have this problem when i ran XP but then a friend of mine said windows periodically scans for networks and that slows me down. So he turned it off and things were all peachy.

Does win7 still do that scan thing? If so is there a way to disable it?
Also is there a better wireless connection manager? i really dislike the one that comes with win7.

XBox 360 PC Wireless Gaming Receiver
I just bought a Wireless Gaming Receiver and the disc included was broken. The device appears to work, but I don't have a driver for it. It says on the package that it is compatible with Windows 7, but I cannot find a driver download online. Does anyone know where I could get one? Thanks.
