16 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 7 x64 Professional

Just double click on the entry. a little box will pop up. on the right side there will be an option to show hex or decimal. select hex, then put in the Fs. Hit OK. You will notice on the right of the entry it will show a 0x before the Fs you put in. Then reboot.

@Fumz: glad it worked for you. =)

It reduced some of my lag aswell when I tried it earlier today.
Switching to a wired connection SHOULD get rid of the choke and ping fluctiation.
It did for me, and since Ethernet generally doesn't require specific driver, you should get a stable ping so long as your internet and the server are up to par.
I know a wired connection is hard, but if it's possible, I would highly advise it.
Choke is less likely with a wired connection.

Windows 9 64 bit

Well, I tried the tweak and it seems to have worked. I did not notice any ping spikes at all and I played last night for hours.

Good stuff. Thanks Fumz & Pinstripe. :)

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I remember on my old desktop PC I had lag spikes about every minute. These spikes always appeared every 50 seconds in a very regular pattern, like "it was set to lag every 50 seconds". I thought I would never get this problem solved, until I asked on a server (Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory server) about this issue.

Some very gently guy was prepared to help me with my problem and he probably knew a solution. And infact he also solved my issue.

The problem was caused by Windows Wireless Zero Configuration (called WLAN Autoconfig/Wired Autoconfig in Windows 7).

What I have done to fix my issue:

Step 1. I went to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services, clicked WLAN Autoconfig/Wired Autoconfig, and selected Properties from the list that pops up.
Step 2. Now search for "Startup type:" and change it to "Disabled"
Step 3. Click OK and reboot your PC. This isn't necessary but it's always better so just do it ;).
Step 4. Come back to the forums to complain because it didn't work or just to say thanks because it did work
I don't know if this is exactly your problem. Do not forget to install the program of your Network Adapter/Network Card because WLAN Autoconfig/Wired Autoconfig takes over when the software of your Network Adapter/Network card isn't installed on your system.

Sorry if this didn't help you!
