Windows 7: High Latency since Windows 7

06 Jan 2010   #11


So when you close the browser, the connection returns to "normal" speeds?

run resource manager to see what's happening during the "lag".

Win7 has some new network-balancing features causing your problems - google for a possible solution.

Yeah, the problem is sporadic to say the least, the game will run smoother than ever and all of a sudden HUGE lag spike.

When it comes to browsing the spike takes place during downloads frequently and when trying to load webpages randomly... this is very frustrating, and I've tried everything you guys have suggested so far to no avail

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

In that case I would connect directly to the modem just to make sure the router is working correctly, if the connection improves the router is having a problem. It may require a reset.

You can also get your machine to reset the IP by using the command prompt, in search type cmd, then when the dos windows comes up type ipconfig /all.

Can you provide your full spec for your laptop?? Have you tried going into the Nvidia site to get the latest chipset drivers??

Good point Martin and one of the first things I thought of in my first post. In fact I already spent a considerable amount of time tracking down some Window 7 drivers for the Op's HP laptop.

The Windows 7 driver situation didn't look so good for the Op's laptop from what I was seeing there.

My Quote:> Scroll down to where it says "Wireless Drivers" for Windows 7 and see what you can find there. The Broadcom and the Intel drivers there may work for you.

I can only hope that the Op found the right drivers.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Well guys, I've found the solution, and anyone upgrading from Vista to Windows 7 should take this into account.

For some reason when upgrading the ethernet connection reconfigured my router, I called belkin about 20min ago, they had me reset the router, restart it and check the Ipv4 address, the numbers were off so we installed the new firmware, reset again and bingo, success, havent had any issues thus far and everything is running VERY smoothly.

Thanks for all the help, I've posted comments on everyone rep, once again, first time using the site and I appreciate it! Goodluck to anyone upgrading to 7!
