First of all it was a pain in the rump jumping through all the hoops to post this fix. But, it is not the gamers fault this forum sucks.. So, that said.. I will now share with you a fix for Hamachi and Windows7. *I have not tested this on any other version of Hamachi. But. one would think the fix would be universal.. I found great improvement while playing games with my friends over the default setting with other operating systems. (Windows XP Pro, and Windows Vista x64 Ultimate)
The process you are about to use is quite a bit like setting priority of programs running in windows. The difference is.. You will be assigning a priority to the Hamachi network adapter. That said.. this is the Hamachi version 1.0.15 fix for Windows 7..
First click on start and navigate to the Control Panel. Next , click on Network and Internet, Network and Sharing Center, and then click on Change Adaper Settings*. (Change Adapter Settings is located at the top left side of your open windows 7 page).
Now for the tricky part.. Ha Ha.. (sarcastic) Right click on the Hamachi network adapter. Notice you see a different screen this time. With the left mouse button click on IP Protocol 4 and select Properties just to the right of the selection box. Now in the area you found the "Properties Tab" in the last step you will see a tab similar but called "Advanced" left click the Advanced Tab now.
If you look all the way to the bottom of the screen you will see Automatic Metric. Untick the Automatic Metric. You will see a box with an integer of 9 is present. Change the 9 to a 1 and click OK. there you go fellas.. Start your Hamachi and enjoy Windows 7
