    High latency when WLAN is on

    Hey folks

    I've run into a strange something, which I can't find any explanation for.

    Whenever I turn on WLAN in my router, the whole network suffers from an incredible latency. No online game is playable, but the download speed itself is not being touched (i.e. fullspeed) and websites load - even if they're a bit slower, it seems.
    Once I'm switching WLAN off, it is all back to normal again.

    I have really no clue about the source of this evil and due to the nature, it's actually hard to google, as you'd only find problems of people that have high latency over the WLAN devices. I'm experiencing all this stuff on my normal LAN PCs as well, though.

    So.. if anybody could point me in the right direction, I'd be overly grateful.

    Thanks in advance.



    here's a result from an online ping test with an american server. so, no packet loss.

    --- ping statistics ---
    20 packets transmitted, 20 packets received, 0.0% packet loss
    round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 108.842/1149.351/2727.156/878.843 ms

    WLAN should only be on when you are trying to pair your router with another wireless device at that moment.

    Once paired it does not need to be on.
