hello, this is my first post here on this site, but im told its one of the best places you can come so here i am.

i have had this problem for probably a year or so, and ive never been that bothered by it, but im starting to get sick of it and im hoping theres something i can do....

like the topic says i get constant lag spikes, im using a linksys WUSB54G v.4 USB wireless adapter and about every minute or 2 i get a lag spike that lasts about 2-4 seconds. while browsing the net, its not really noticeable, but im a gamer and when i play WoW or counterstrike, it causes me much grief. i had a microsoft USB wireless adapter for awhile and it had the same problem. when it happens both CS and WoW freeze entirely for a second or 2 then catch up. i guess thats all i can describe it as. i will list my system specs incase anyone needs to know:

Windows XP home SP2
AMD AM2 X2 4200+
Gigabyte GA M55 SLi-4 mobo
eVGA 7600GT
2x 1gig DDR2667 patriot memory (OC'd to DDR2800)
Western Digital 250gig HDD

thanks in advance to anyone who can help me :thumbsup:

edit: also, no one else on the network has this problem so its not the router.

Make sure that you are using a USB 2.0 port and that you have the latest chipset drivers for the mainboard.

Type the following in the run line: defrag C: -v -f and tap the enter key. the command window will close when the program is done.
