  1. Ive been getting lag spikes for some wierd reason, like every 20 seconds maybe.
    or every 1 minute.
    Ive pinged the router and i get over 900-2000ms every 10 seconds or something.
    Ive bought a new router and ive still got the same problem.
    Slow internet, everything. this happens on all the computers in my house.
    hope it can be solved

    what operating system? XP? it may be XP scanning for other networks.

    click start run then type services.msc look for a command called wireless zero config double click and stop the service (dont worry it'll come back on after restart) then ping your system if it helps you can completely disable the service the same way

    if its Vista the service is called WLAN Autoconfig but you cant stop it in Vista it'll bring your while network down.

    Bad packets -

    Have you updated the firmware on the router?
    If you have done it before I would do it again
    On the wireless laptop.. open the dos window under XP

    type:

    ipconfig /flushdns
    nbtstat -r
    netsh interface ip delete arpcache

    one you do the above type this:

    nbtstat -n (this should tell you if your system is registered on network)
    nbtstat -s (this will tell you connection table avg)

    netstat -s

    IP4v or IP6v status
    Look at this stuff carefully

    Also run spyware sweep on your system and see if anything is hidding?
    Or calling back to it's maker?
    Scan for virus activity also.

    Contact your ISP and have them check your connections for internet WAN. Since the problem still exist even with a new router.
