    I've installed over week ago wireless router. I'm using TP-Link TD-W8901G
    My PC is plugged with router with ethernet Cable and second PC (Sister's is wireless).

    I'm using Windows Vista and never had problems with lags and disconnecting until last week when i'm using this bloody wireless -,- :poke:
    I haven't forwarded ports and i have poor Signal (Only 2 of out 5). I really dont understand it because i'm plugged to it with Ethernet Cable o.O
    Turning off Antivir and others programs doesn't helps

    About lags and disconnection issues with GTR Evo, when i getting disconnected cars dissapearing but i can still drive but alone then. There is no cars on the track and cars arent backing to my view.

    Please for help :(

    I have similar problem using a WLAN router too, just not as frequent and it's lag free.. Do any of the lights change on it when you get disconnected?

    Hope you get it sorted before the next RDMCC event, from what I remember, we were quite close and I reckon we'd have some good battles :D

    Wireless and Online gaming is the worst possible combination there is :)

    Download this.
    There is a problem with Vista whereby every 60 seconds it will try and find a better signal which makes you lag. With this software it doesn't.

    Also is the router N and the wireless card N?
    Before i upgraded to N i was having your problems. But now i have upgraded it all seems to work fine for me(touch wood :p)

    If i remember rightly you just unrar and run.
    Once opened go to options and then click on start with windows

    Just to try the software i posted first.
    And if you still get lag i would then try the other software

    Edit: I just typed in your software and it seems like a lot more work for the same effect.
    SO i would just stick to the link i have posted

    Does that happen if you run it as administrator?

    Weird - the only thing i can think of is that it doesn't work with your wireless card.
