i have a cable internet connection, super fast laptop, linksys wireless router 801.11g, and internal intel wireless card 801.11g. my connection status is always excellent with full bars, the speed dips down to 11 mbps, no lower. when i search for game servers i get low pings, 20-60, join and i cant play a game on this connection for more than 60 seconds before the lag sets in and i am hopping all over the map. if i plug in a cable i have no problems at all. anyone have any suggestions?

attaching themselves to your network? They will cause the rest of the "G" devices to slow down.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
