Does Anyone in this ENTIRE FORUM have a MSI GX630 that does NOT have WiFi connectivity problems?! Meaning that the RaLink NIC actually performs well. Please just reply to this an let me know what you've done because my card, which is a N-card, seems to be performing horribly! I was playing Halo over a network with some friends and the lag was horrible. I have the latest RT2860 drivers and the ralink utility. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Have you done a ping to your friends computers as well as a traceroute to see where the lagging starts?
Ralink cards are normally one of the best Wlan cards there are.

Lagging can have many causes, if it's the card or network you can normally detect it with ping and tracing of the packets.
However, the OS as well as filewalls and AV software can cause it too.

And last, was this a local network or over the internet? Where is the server located?

And please STOP starting new topics all the time....did you ever found the cause of the BSOD?
Come to think of it, if you have a troubled harddisk, the same things can happen including the BSOD's.

No. That's great that they are but in the customer reviews from newegg where i bought the laptop some pther people have complained about the wireless, a good amount. And I've found no RaLink forums else  I'd be there asking this question.

It was lagging a bit at first but that was because Vista was blocking it. I then unblocked and continued gaming and the lag would come back randomly.

It was a local network.

I started this new post as the first one had nothing to do with his and I wanted persons to see this and offer some assistance as i've heard that some GX630 owners have no WiFi troubles. Not many people would notice this question if i put it in an old post that was well replied to and discussed.
I've reinstalled Vista and have had no BSODs in a long while. It was thought to be memory problems but memtest turned up nothing. I also don't have the constant HD light and slow loading anymore. Right now my only real problem is the wireless card.
Thanks for the suggestions.

Wireless is always tricky....however if you have lagging:

1st: Remove all encryption in your wlan network, this to ensure compability to the max between AP and Wlan-adapter, soem work better with WEP others with WPA, to be sure test without.

2nd: Test with cabled connection, just to ensure the problem is on your side or not.

3th: Traceroute and ping cabled and wireless (if wireless is the problem, then tracing shows way bigger times, wireless is always a bit higher)

4th: Check other Wlans in your area, make sure they don't use the same channel as you do, make sure you use channels MORE then 2~3 numbers away, else they interfere and disturb your channel.

5th: Avoid too many systems on the same Wlan, as speed decreases when adding computers....Wlan is not the same a wired...

I'm just another guy having troubles with ralink wifi... i've done lots of tests to conection on every router i've been conected. At my house i have a linksys wrt54gs on stuck flash, Ping to router at about 20 feet away and 3 walls can be from 1ms to 1.3k ms... Yes VERY unstable... At my gf's i have same router but this one with ddwrt flash iono if this is more stable cuz i am closer everytime im there, even tho it is unstable. I have an encore router at my parents home(this one i just know is a piece of ****) and i can't connect from several places. i can't complain at all when i have a wired conection. stable 1 ms to every point(internal LAN) in every case... i've changed the channel to 11 in every AP since everybody on wlan seems to stay on the default channel(6) even disconnected wireless phones... i've done everything possible, the only improve i've gotten is by activating the multimedia/gaming environment on wireless properties... It could have improved like a 15% maybe... The real improvement is with ubuntu, there i have some nice wireless stability, always at 80-100% connection signal and 1-2ms, the thing is i cant play everything on linux :(

My guess is that drivers aren't just that good... ima have to try windows 7 and see if it makes a difference...

i think ralink needs to do a driver update(or me, iono i have stuck drivers and no updates since first install)

i used the ralink card, figuiring that going MSI-approved wireless-n would be the best idea... silly me.  :bonk: i gave up on it and sold it, it was a piece of crap. I put an Intel Wifi 5300 in mine, and the internet stability and speed is phenomenal! there were no problems with compatibility at all, i put it in, installed the drivers, and it worked! or, if you feel funny about mixing nvidia/amd platforms with intel parts, the Atheros 5008 series are amazing too! just thought i'd throw in my two cents... use the Intel wifi, it actually uses all three cables!  :agrees:

Back on the forum after a while and can't believe that people still cannot use search function

https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=125431.msg945289#msg945289

or

https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=123537.msg934644#msg934644

That works for all Draft-N (also some newer 802.11G) WLAN adaptors, from Ralink, Realtek, Intel etc. This issue lies not on WLAN adaptor, but on the router - or better to say, incopatibility of it's firmware with PSP (Power Save Pooling) function.
Here's what Intel has to say about this issue.

How many times it should be explained over and over? This post should be stickied IMO.
