Hi all, i'm having the same problem wit a Realtek 8185 pci wireles adapter.
Actually it seems caused by an update.
I resetted the OS to a previous point and resetted the router and it works.
Now i've disabled all updates until i found the wrong one.

Did you do a Realtek NIC update?

I just got it home from the shop and they were able to locate drivers for the NCI that I couldnt find for some reason. I am online and doing fine except that I am getting some really slow download speeds for some reason.

Hmmm, if they had it working at shop before you left, what changed on the drive home and then when you set it up?

I'm assuming you have rebooted to check if DL speed picks back up? Your not running a bittorrent client or similar on startup are you?

What im thinking is possibly the Manufacturer's drivers and Windows drivers are conflicting?

The shop is running two separate wireless networks. It turns out that one of them my computer will run fine on with no issues, one of the techs had it up and running logged into WoW for about 3.5 hours. On the other network, he would have it on and get the high latency dcs that I am asking about in my other post. IDK if its a router issue or what.

Just throwing some ideas out there... Is there a difference between the 2 wireless networks @ shop? For example, is one an 802.11 g and the other 802.11n? Different brand routers? Different encryption; is one WPA and the other WEP? why is one a strong connect and other weak?

A very weird issue for sure, please keep us updated.

And as UberPhilf said it does sound like a driver issue... or it is tied to drivers for your wireless NIC, so keep a close eye on manufactureres site for 7 driver updates!
