Wireless Network from Vista to XP


Recommended Posts

My wireless network is much faster on Vista than XP. I am using the same hardware and same XP drivers

for the wireless card. Only operating system is different.

I read Vista wireless network has a better error packet recovery. They were saying they would do something similar in XP Service Pack 3.

But, I don't see any improvement.

So, I am curious if I can copy some binaries and registry keys from Vista to XP.

Is this possible?

If Vista is using\forcing the card to use 11G mode only while XP is using mixed mode (11G\B) then that would give a clear difference in speed.

Thank you for your response.

I don't know how to check what 802.11 is used.

I looked at the driver settings and turned off 11A and 11B support. I checked direct download speeds and XP and Vista is similar now.

Are there other things I should check like some registry keys?

Under wireless properties, there are QoS packet scheduler, IPV6/IPV4, Link Layer Topology. Do they effect the speed?
