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 Windows 7 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 Windows 7.
