No, not strange at all. Your framerate probably gets below 60FPS which means vsync gets turned off and you'll get tearing.
Try the half refresh rate setting. If that eliminates tearing then you're definitely below 60FPS.
Or are you perhaps using a 120Hz monitor?
Then the author of the article on adaptive vsync, Brent Justice, made some mistakes when writing his article on HardOCP:
"Note that tearing only occurs if the framerate exceeds the refresh rate, so if all your performance is under 60 FPS, you won't see tearing even with VSync off...
I really would like to use this on my LG L245WP but I can't get into the service menu by pressing the menu button while powering on.
Does anyone know how to access the service menu on the L245WP please?
LOL, nevermind. I'd been searching for this before but couldn't find it. Just now I found...

You didn't misread, it's just that the new router (indeed with 4x gigabit LAN ports) is on the other side of our house :)
Maybe I wasn't clear enough with my explanation in my first post. The room where the PC and printer are located has only 1 UTP connection running to the router on the other side of the house.
So to be able to use both the PC and printer on the network I have to use a switch or 2 NICs. But...
My girlfriend's PC is connected to a 10/100 switch which is connected to our router. The reason there's a switch is that she also has a network printer in her room.
Now I've bought a gigabit router and want to connect her computer with an extra gigabit NIC and use the 10/100 mainboard...
