    Recently bought the above router to share my virgin media connection. The cable modem is a motorola sb5100. I currently have a pc and xbox 360 attached via ethernet and my girlfriend occasionaly connects wirelessly with her lappy.

    It seemed fine but i kept getting lag spikes while playing day of defeat source (ping would stay stable but would suddenly "go jerky") Also experienced lag during Pro Evo 6 on the xbox360 (to the point where i get disconnected from live).

    I have tried the 360 through the router without pc on and vice versa and still happens.

    Have also changed firmware to DD-WRT v23 and v23_sp3 and neither seemed to improve.

    If i connect the cable modem directly to pc or xbox 360 the problem seems to dissapear which suggests that it isnt the connection itself.

    Any Help would be greatly appreciated. Im also a total n00b when it comes to networking and haven't changed any settings apart from the firmware.

    You have secured the wireless haven't you - if not are you providing P2P bandwidth for all your neighbours?

    Kempy you need to adjust QoS for gaming and lower the priority for wireless usage.
