I've noticed in every online game I've played lately, I get occasional lag spikes every 30-45 seconds or so. They are very brief, last only for a second or two, but they are very consistent and make playing online games less smooth and somewhat frustrating.
I've opened ports for various games that I play, but it doesn't seem to have any effect. When I plug in directly into the router it seems to eliminate the problem. This is not ideal however, as my router is on the other side of the room and I'd rather not be running a wire across the room just to play games.
Is this a typical problem with adapters? My wireless adapter is a Linksys WUSB600N, and the router is a Linksys WRT54G. I've done some searching on the issue but haven't turned up much. Thanks for any help/advice!
