Hey guys !
My current config is as follows:
Asus P8Z68 V-lx
i5 2400
8 GB Ripjaw
ASus 7850 DCUII 2GB
1TB hdd
600 W Great wall 7000A 80+ power supply
23" monitor
Dlink DWA 525 pci wireless card.

My problem is that as soon as i launch any application that is graphic intensive my wireless card stops working (either it will disconnect , or speed will go down very low to nearly 0) , and by graphic intensive i mean even while watching movies.
As soon as i close the application its working again

i have kept a slot space between the card and gfx card. but this is not alowing me to play games online .

Pls help

Move the Wireless card as far from the card as you can, They sometimes will overheat. I have an Asus PCI Wireless card and the antenna is really long and I have most of it wrapped inside of my case, And I get some weird interference I think from my HDD's, Once I take the wire out of the case , it works like new.

Do you have a fan on the side of the case blowing towards the wireless and the video card? Might help, Other then that, It may just be a driver issue with it, Update the drivers, or downgrade the drivers and see if that will fix it. Btw don't use the windows driver for the wireless, Had a problem when win 7 installed my wireless card and some websites along with MagicJack would not work, but facebook and some games worked just fine.

nah i dont have a fan on side of the case but my graphic card hardly gets hot , its usually in the range of 35-40 or max 50 C . Also I m living in bangkok and i dont exactly know my ISP but i guess its true move and my router is thomson.
