When I open World of Warcraft or Call of Duty modern warfare 2 Single Player my internet download speed drops from 160kbs-220kbs to 0kbs in about 5seconds. Faster on World of Warcraft. Call of duty it takes about 6minutes to drop out completely. When I watch Videos on VLC I think I run about 10kbps slower than normal as well (these are videos on my hdd)
I think it could be Graphic card interference, or a fan interference maybe the processor but not sure. Or else it's its a windows 7 conflict with drivers and such.
I am using my internal wireless card don't currently and probably wont have access to LAN connection anytime soon.
My network adapters
Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter "BCM43XX64" Using a driver from ASUS laptop site, the driver seems to be better than HP's Old 2009 driver. Cannot find my card on Broadcom's site. How ever the setup I got from ASUS has my card in it so it should be correct. BCM43XX64 Driver Ver. 220.127.116.11. I tested about 5 different drivers from HPs site one of them blue screened me until I safe mode uninstall.
Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller Disabled Driver 7.3.522.2009 from HP site, Win 7 x64
I have a Westell DSL router A90-750022-07 Software VersionVER:5.02.00.04
with Century Link internet, fiber optic line, speed test average rural 1mbps internet. Messed with security on router tried resetting it as well nothing helped. I don't think the router is the problem, I could go to Vista and get on online games just fine.
I am the only one the connection at the moment problem still exists
I've Fresh reformatted Windows 7 2x to be sure. This current install isn't fully updated yet but I have all my laptops drivers installed. Earlier I had a fully updated install still had the issue.
Well basically this is huge for me because I haven't been able to play World of Warcraft since I installed Windows 7 and I also I cannot run any 3d application and download / browse at the same time.
Everything worked fine on Vista x64, but I really want to use Windows 7 I get way better benchmarks in almost every aspect compared to vista accept these networking issues.
Things I've messed with, no effect;
Disable / enable Windows firewall and windows defender.
Install different versions of Broadcom driver.
Run as admin on admin account
leatrix latency fix
Enabling disabling QoS packet scheduler, ipv6, LLTD, LLTD I/O, Sharing, MS cleint. In sequential order.
Tons Different combinations of settings on driver configuration tab.
Changing the channel on router from 8 to 11 to 6 back to 11
installing every driver for my laptop
Unplugging mouse / external keyboard and headphones
Turning off sound
Running a bittorrent while playing game or a download. Still cant connect as long as 3d graphics are drawn.
