To start off, my laptop is an Asus G75VW-AS71. The wireless network adapter is an Atheros AR9485WB-EG. The issue I'm having only starts when I play an online game. It's not a specific one, it happens with all my games. After about a few matches, I will begin to experience terrible lag spikes. (Ranging from 300-500 ms, sometimes even going up to over 2000) Usually the spikes are permanent. I will jump to around 300 ping, and hover in that general number, with it occasionally sliding back down to my normal 82, only to immediately spring back up again. After this begins to happen, any application I use that uses internet (internet browser, skype, etc) also lags/is severely slowed down. This lag is never experienced on any other system using our wireless internet, which makes me believe it is in fact my laptop's wireless adapter that is the problem. Doing a windows troubleshoot on the adapter DOES fix it, but it only fixes it for about 10 to 15 minutes, and then I begin to lag again. Also, the troubleshooter seems to only be able to fix it once. If I try to troubleshoot the adapter again after already fixing it before that way, the troubleshooter will tell me that it couldn't find anything wrong. Manually restarting the adapter only works once as well. Restarting the computer does not help the problem. If the laptop is shut down for a few hours and started back up, the adapter will work properly as long as I do not start a game. Could anyone help tell me how to stop this from happening? Do I need to get a new adapter or is there something I can do for the current one?
