Whenever i access the internet through my wireless connection, my system slows down considerably. When i use wired Lan, everything works fine.
Most noteably when i try playing games online, i get a serious drop in fps, using wireless. (5-10 fps vs. 60-100, samge game same exact config etc.)
I attached my DxDiag, if you need anything else please let me know.

Wireless is by nature slower then a wired connection.

The bandwidth is also less. Then take into account that the ethernet signal go`s through a couple transitions when using wireless. Ethernet to RF = Radio Frequency back to ethernet.

Upgrading to wireless N may help.
Also some may report no problems using wireless for gaming. The reasons for the problem(s) you experience can be numerous. Some being outside of your control. Including outside RF interference from other devices. Micro-wave ovens, cordless phones, certian types of lighting to name a few.
