    Hey, all.

    Currently having an issue with my laptop and its wireless.

    The set up:

    Router: WRT54G
    Firmware: DD-WRT
    WIFI device: Intel 5300 AGN.

    The issue I am having is sudden complete disconnects from my wireless. In addition to such, I am getting massive lag in World Of Warcraft.

    More detailed description of disconnects: The internet will browse nice and snappy (bandwidth test of 5MB down and 2MB up), but it may suddenly completely lose its connection and have to get a new address and whatnot.

    WoW lag: When I am plugged in via a LAN cord to the ethernet port, I can get 60 FPS. When I am on wireless, 22FPS, and EXTREMELY laggy. Other online games do not suffer the same way.

    Any ideas? Do I need a better router?

    what does the "connected speed" do? does it bounce around?

    what version of the router?
    what NIC are you using in your computer?

    if the router and NIC are negotiating speeds, then you'll see massive lag and such in games...but things will seem seamless in a web browser.

    Edit: Here is a link to a test I did a few years back when I was using an Intel 2200BG network card with a WRT-54g router
    network connection was stable until I used it...every time it negotiates, there's major lag.

    Which version of the DD-WRT firmware are you using. Make sure it is the latest for your WRT54G as well.
