Windows 7: Connection Spiking when Searching for Networks

Connection Spiking when Searching for Networks

Hey guys!

I've been wrestling with a problem I'm having and I finally figured out what it is! The thing is that even after following other guides to solve what is described to be my problem, nothing is fixed!

Basically, whenever I'm playing a game online (wirelessly), Windows 7 is refreshing/searching for new wireless networks to join. I can recreate this by opening/closing the network tab at the bottom right and watching my

ping -t

and see the ms jump up whenever I open it from <1 to 1000+. I tried WLAN Optimizer and that doesn't work, it doesn't seem to do anything. I have "connect to a more preferred network" unchecked for my SSID.

Using Linksys WMPG54G v4.1 with Windows 7 update driver. Windows 64 Bit Ultimate.
