    i have the wrt300n router and the matching wireless N network adapter for my desktop. im having trouble with losing connection when im playing games... mostly when im on World of Warcraft. it seems like when im in a very populated area or in an instance the latency goes high and then i get disconnected from the game server. this started happening as soon as i went wireless.
    also, i have noticed that i can pick up other routers around me when i look on the linksys program that came with my router and network card. is it possible that those routers are confusing my computer and making it loose connection while im playing the game??? i cannot tell when im surfing the web or when im using other things..... thanks for the help

    Yes it can and the latency still may be somewhat present when you are online in general, its just the gaming is much more sensitive to delay then http traffic. Try changing to a different channel, by default most wireless devices come set to channel 6 and most folks never change that, move to another channel and give it a try.

    actually im set on channel 1. this is really starting to annoy the crap out of me...almost to the point of selling this stuff and getting a long ass network cable and start drilling holes in my house!!!!!!

    Channel 1 tends not to work.

    Try 6/8 or 11.

    Something to try, but this type of problem should not be limited to a wireless connection only.

    Anyway, see if you can find a setting that allows you to reduce the number of connections tracked by the router, or increase this, and/or reduce the time that connections are tracked. Games usually make 100s of connections, and when the router tries to track them all it gets too much for the memory and CPU.
