lag spike every minute
« on: April 23, 2020, 02:36:22 PM »

Hello
I just got the D-Link DWA 171 AC600 MU-MIMO USB wireless adapter for use on my desktop. About every minute I get a 3000 ms lag spike. I tested with my laptop connected to the same network in the same area with no problems.
I've googled and downloaded the most up to date driver for this adapter with the correct hardware version "C1" and the drivers for my motherboard.

I've also tried disabling the WLAN autoconfig as detailed here:
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-networking/how-to-disable-wlan-autoconfig-for-proper-internet/fd8da170-5c68-e011-8dfc-68b599b31bf5

I've also searched this and other forums for similar problems and tried many solutions with no luck. Wondering if anyone else here has had this problem and found a solution. Thank you

Be sure the adapter driver is up to date from here:
https://support.dlink.com/ProductInfo.aspx?m=DWA-171

What mfr and model host wifi router is the adapter being connected too?

Is this seen with other wifi routers?
Connect it to a different PC or laptop to see if the problem follows.

Thanks for the reply,
I fixed it actually by disabling windows update in services.msc, in case anyone finds this later.
All I know is that it's a router from Telus.
