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 oinline 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 settign 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 did some more testing yesterday. I swapped PCI slots for the card with no improvement. When watching the connection status it would drop from 270 mbps to 54 mbps with minimal load and eventually down to 1 mpbs under load (file transfer across the network). It would then recover to 54 mbps or so and fall again.
I plugged in an off brand USB N adapter for comparison. I had both connected to the same network at once and compared. The USB adapter had a full signal most of the time where the WMP600N had only 2 or 3 bars. The WMP600N would hit 270 mbps or 300 mbps with no load and the USB adapter would only reach 90 mbps. The USB adapter held 90 mbps the majority of the time, but would occasionally drop to 60 mbps for a moment then recover. The connection with the USB adapter was stable and the WMP600N would drop often, no matter the router settings.
So, the issues is not my router or Windows settings ... it must be related directly to the drivers of the WMP600N hardware itself. Any help?

I just installed a WMP600N in a W7x64 desktop, and I'm not getting a normal download speed from this adapter, using the supplied software and driver.The latency and upload numbers are what I'd expect, though. So, I moved the desktop pc up higher physically and changed the angle of the antenna's some, and that helped, but I'm maxing out at 8mbps when I should get 25-30mbps. I tested it against my laptop, which is Wireless N but not dual band, and it gets 30mbps down, just fine. (like the desktop did, when it was connected via ethernet) -Tom, thanks for your list of what you tried.
I bought this adapter because I had a linksys e3000 router, and thought it made sense to get the same brand, which may have been a big mistake. :^(
-I posted about this over in the Router/ e3000 folder. The suggestion was made to get the new driver, but I believe the latest driver came with the disc in the box.

I just buy new router and this linksys.
I want be still one step forward
So i have "googling" some infos about this adapter.
Maybe try this solution (i will try it today/tommorow). I have found it on one forum
*sorry for my english..
!. Remove adapter from Device Manager.
2. For Windows 7 go to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository and remove all folders with started string "netr28" in folder name.
3. Restart your comp.
4. Follow up Windows new hardware instructions and show path where located your Linksys driver 188.8.131.52

Thnks for the info. I will try this.
But with Win 7 it will try to reinstall the cars without a prompt like XP does. So, there is no option to point to the files you want it to use. It will automatically connect to Windows Update or look in the standard drivers if there is no internet connection.
That's a problem I have ... if I uninstall from device manager and try to run the Linksys install it can't find the device. If I refresh device manager it installs the Windows drivers.
Maybe leave it installed in device manager and remove the files, then force it to update the drivers to the Lynksys drivers?

I tried the method above and could not delete the files in the System32 folder. Even though I'm the administrator I was told I didn't have permissions to remove the files.
On that note, has anyone tried running the Linksys installer as administrator?
