    Wireless networking + MP3 skipping

    ANyone else have this problem?

    Fitted wireless lan today a netgear MA311 pci and it works great, was surfing and using MIRC outside my house etc.

    One small problem though, when you go to drive off, the wireless lan card obviously keeps looking for a network, this is causing my mp3 playback through media engine to skip slightly, like pause.

    If I disable the device in DM, then all's well I think I hope lol, as I could drive for ages and no skipping,

    So I was wondering if anyone else has come accross this?

    Cheers

    Yeah I have this problem with Winamp and my Linksys 802.11g network.. This is with my home computer, not my car. I am not sure what would happen in my car, but I haven't had a problem so far I think the problem I have lies with in Winamp or my network connection/drivers.

    Your playback is skipping? Mine is too... no wireless for me though. I think it has something to do with mp3s being played off a firewire drive or the extigy i dunno....

    I use Mediacar/winamp in the car, and have a wireless 54G card, and have no probs with skipping. the only Issue I get is when I first activate the GPS function in my routing software I get a small pause while it first initialises.

    i have the exact same problem with the same wireless card. the music skips because the wireless card is looking for a signal. if i disable the card it stops skipping. its not really a skip.. its more of a blip. im running frodoplayer NOT WINAMP. thanks for any help/advice

    Uhh... try some updated drivers. Had this problem with a d-link card. It was bad enough that without a wireless network around, it would take abou 7 minutes LONGER to boot than normal. Sheesh!

    Other than that, try a different style card. Is it PCI? I haven't come across this problem on USB yet.
