Wireless Connection issues
« on: November 28, 2006, 02:46:30 PM »
Hey guys im new and only 16 so I have only a basic understanding of computer software so sorry if somethings aren't clear.
Theres something wrong with my BT voyeger 2092 or my PC. I was gonna take it to PC world but thats a long, over prices trip for something that could be clearly obvious.
there are two main problems with the wireless connection. The first major one is that the majority of the time when i try to go the internet the computer will 'lag' extremely badly. An example of this can be seen on my steam game server where the ping for a server which, when on the rare occasions the internet is running smoothly, would be about 20-30 goes up to 600-1700. Ive tried all different methods from turning off my step brothers PC to turning the wireless connection off over night but to no prevail. there doesn't seem to be any clear reason why the internet would go extremely slow because it seems to do it a differet times as well. One day it will be ok from about 11am-5pm other days it wn't be ok at all. Its making it impossible to do homework for college, game online or email.
The 2nd problem has been present since we got it last year but ive made due with it. It can only be seen really when im playing a game online but when i am running around on Counter strike for example something will happen to my internet connection and my game will stop for about a second and then start back up again. It isn't a graphical problem but a problem with the actual internet. This happens ever 1-3 minutes and becomes extremely frustrating. All i really want to do is occasionally plan a game on the internet when im bored and i can't do this. Thanks for reading this and hopefully you will be able to shed sum light on the problem.

System Stats
Basic windows fire wall
BT voyeger Router (about 4-5 meters away)
Ralink RT2500 Wireless Lan Card
512 ram
94.2BG out of 182GB space free

I don't know if theres anything else you need to know.
Thanks guys

    hun..... about the first problem I would try and uninstall any drivers/ software for your wierless card and re-install I would also see if there are any firware updates for the speed stream. Also yu mentioned the computer is also only 4-5 meters away, as long as it isent throught wals i woul just go out and buy a 20 ft. cat 5 cable it is alwase 100 mbs, it is safer, and more secure. Post back with results/ more problms.

      You probably don't need a firmware update. Try this.
      1. Uninstall the drivers and remove the card from device manager
      2. Shut down and physically remove the card
      3. Reboot
      4. Shut down and reboot again
      5. Install the drivers but not the card
      6. Shut down and install the card
      7. Reboot
      Some wireless cards require the drivers be installed before the card is physically installed.
      If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
