I think I found a solution to your problem better than one you posted in another thread. I run Vista 64bit with my WMP600N on the Vista 64bit Drivers and I was having same issues in World of Warcraft like you were with the lag lasting 2-4 seconds every couple of minutes. I've read your threads and went around in my computer looking at all settings for the adapter. I stumbled onto one that was disabled which in my opinion shouldn't have been. I tested out the new setting for a week now and the lag spikes are gone so I'm pretty sure this is the fix.
1.) Open up Device Manager and find the wireless adapter and bring up it's properties
2.) Go to the advance tab in the driver properties
3.) On left is list of settings and on the right is a drop box letting u enable/disable the settings. click on Multimedia/Gaming Environment. Enable this setting and click Okay. (this setting was disabled by default on my computer)
4.) Give the adapter time to change the setting (you will notice your adapter will disconnect and should reconnect automatically if u have a network saved)
Hope this helps fix your lag issue like it did mine.

Welcome to the Cisco Home Community.
You can download the WUSB600N drivers here.

I'm having some very similar issues with my WMP600N and Windows 7 64 ... I posted this reply in another thread as well ...
I'm having very similar issues with my WMP600N card on Windows 7 64 (SP1).
With standard browsing there aren't many issues. However, in a gaming environment the ping skyrockets. This also seems to happen with file transfers across the network. I can normally Alt+Tab out of a gaming application to get a connection if it just needs to log on or similar, but there is no solution for a stable connection in an actual online gaming session.
Last night, I had a stable ~230 mbps connection according to Windows. I started a file transfer and it plummeted to ~40 mbps. If I run a voice chat client with a game, I instantly lose that ability to speak/listen as the ping shoots to 10k+.
I've tried ...
1) Windows Drivers
2) Updated Linksys drivers
3) Using the Linksys wireless manager with both driver sets
4) Modifying the "Gaming Environment" setting on the card
5) Multiple settings in the router (Belkin) including using only a 20hz signal, multiple channels, forcing N and G connections and a few other things.
6) A fixed IP from the router
7) Port forwarding
I've run this setup wired to the same router with no issues. I run a 16mbps cable connection. Some of the router settings I tried seemed to make the issues a little less severe, but it is still unusable for gaming.
Any help or other suggestions for a fix would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I have somehow the same problem, however this is the whole OS thats lagging. I have tried the gaming setting, this did not work. I have also tried switching its pci spot again with no luck. However their were some luck in adjusting the antennas. This seemed stupid but it worked a little and the lags have become smaller but still veeeery annoying
I also run Windows 7 64x.
Anyone know an answer?

I have also got the exact same problem running windows 7 x64. The second the wireless adapter establishes a connection with my wireless router my cursor and os lag like crazy every few seconds.
I've tried everything; updating the drivers, changing pci slot as you previously stated however, I plugged it in downstairs yesterday next to the wireless router to download the battlefield 3 beta I had a 100% signal and bizarrely it didn't lag once.
Looks like I'm going to be buying one long Ethernet cable!

Just perform my solution step by step and will be happy.
!. Uninstall adapter from Device Manager (mark ‘Delete the driver software for this device’) and any wireless utilities like as Ralink utility.
2. For Windows 7 go to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository and remove all folders with started string "netr28" in folder name.(Change owner for folder: Right click on folder => Choose 'Properties' => 'Security' => 'Advanced' => 'Owner' => 'Edit' => Choose your name => Mark 'Replace owner on subcontainers and objects' and Click 'Ok', 'Ok', 'Ok', 'Ok' => Open ‘Security’ again and Highlight ‘Everyone” => ‘Edit’ and mark ‘Full control’ => ‘Ok’, ‘Ok’ and delete folder )
3. Restart your computer.
4. New hardware installation start and end unsuccessful. Ignore it.
5. Go to Device Manager found ‘Network Controller’ under ‘Other devices’ => Right Click on it and Choose “Update Driver Software..‘ => ‘Browse my computer for driver software’ and show path where located your unzipped Linksys driver 220.127.116.11 => Click ‘Next’ => ‘Close’

Have tried just what you said, and when i try to install the 18.104.22.168 driver, it doesn't do it. It tells me that it has found the driver but not installed it due to a problem. Any good answer as to why/how?
