    If it screws up while playing that game, then try connecting the modem directly and playing.
    I tried connecting the modem directly, but it doesn't even connect to the internet when I do that. Not sure why, but I am going to try that again right now.

    Reset the modem after you connect it to the PC

    Ok, I did that. It took a while for it to start working again. When I want to hook my router back up do I have to put the modem back into bridge mode or whatever?

    This is going to be annoying testing it like this too. It didn't mess up every game so I am going to have to play like 3 or 4 just to check.

    bridge mode? I wouldn't think you'd need to do that to begin with

    It worked fine just hooking it straight into the modem.

    Speaking of routers. I have been using a Linksys WRT54G for over 4 years now, and I have never had a problem with it. It has always worked like a charm, even with BT d/ls going, two PS3s on the PSN, and a laptop doing a remote desktop connection with one of the desktop computers, all connected wirelessly. In fact, we don't have anything hardwired into it right now.

    PROTIP: Don't try to install Alcohol 120% version 1.9.3150 (or 3015, one of the two) on Vista. They don't play well together. Massive BSODs, can't even reboot in safe mode. Had to go "Last Known Good Config", and no idea if that will work next time I reboot.

    Hmm, it'd be difficult to troubleshoot without being there tbqh. Try boosting the tx Power to 100% and forcing the Tx Rate to stay at 54Mbps.

    I've always had bad experiences with them in the past, but from what all I've heard about them recently I'd be willing to give them another shot.

    Also, I had the same router die within a year, as did it's replacement

    I'm not really a fan of Alcohol 120% any more. It never stays registered I constantly have to put in my *legit details every time I start it.

    And I'm too scared to install Daemon Tools because last time I constantly got BSODs.

    Either you had two lemons, or I got a freak. This router has not had a single problem handling anything that I have thrown at it, as you can see in my post above. All of that was at the same time.

    I would, but I have no idea what the hell you are talking about. Also, if that is referring to the wireless signal, I am connecting it wired right now.

    well if you were using a linksys router, it would be under wireless --> advanced settings

    so try looking for it somewhere like that on ur router.

    But is that going to change anything even if I am connecting it with wires?
