    [Bug] Ess 3.0.551 WPA2/AES slowdown [fixed]

    laptop:
    xp pro oem sp2
    laptop p4 2.66ghz
    1gb ddr
    Netgear wg511 wireless adapter (v3.0 drivers)
    router - thompson st585v6 (fiirmware 6.2.17.5)
    wireless set to 54digit WPA2 AES

    without ESS installed, i can watch video (xvid) from my mediacenter (no firewall or AV installed on mediacenter)

    as soon as i install ess on the laptop and attempt to watch anything over the network, mediaplayer/vlc just hangs and becomes unresponsive, this is the same no matter if ESS is in auto or interactive mode.
    nothing is being reported as being blocked in the logs. i also tried unticking "scan network drives" in the antivirus section of ESS.

    its not just watching films/tv shows, even just copying a large file over the wireless is incredibly slow..

    BUT if i open a remote desktop session & minimize it (to another pc on my network), then eveything goes normal, Film/tv shows play perfectly on the laptop, and copying files is as quick as can be expected for 54mps wireless.

    also if i change my network to the less secure WPA or WEP then eveything is fine, only problem is when i use WPA2/AES

    once again, i reported this in beta2 & rc1

    thanks

    ok fixed!!

    seems that ESS doesnt get along well with the firmware, fixed after i just ran latest firmware for the router.

    info here in case it helps someone in future..

    router - Thompson st585v6 with (firmware 6.2.15.7) will suffer this problem with ess installed

    firmware 7.4.1.7.0 fixes it.:thumb:
