Windows 7: World of Warcraft running slow on W7.

World of Warcraft running slow on W7.

I've just bought a new Wireless card today, hoping it would improve my internet speed, as WoW can't even run, 1 spell and I get an insta-disconnection.

I just wondered if anyone else has experienced network problems when trying to play WoW on W7? And of course any possible fixes?

WOW runs very well on win7 for me , have you done any speedtests on your connection or play any other games to eliminate that as a problem ?

are you confident you have the latest drivers for your graphics card ?

I will check the driver issue for my GFX card,the PC was bought new on monday, with W7 installed already.
WoW runs fine on my laptop, which is also on the same network, but the internet and WoW seem to run incredibly slow on my new desktop (With W7) and I have no idea why! Will look into the GFX card drivers now!

I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and my World of Warcraft has been running somewhat choppy. To be honest it is barely noticeable to anyone else but to me I can totally tell since it isn't smooth like it used to be on Windows XP. It is like every second or so it stalls for...
