I have a problem with my ADSL USB modem during online play for games. I usually can play games such as Alien Vs Predator 2, Half-Life, Return to Castle Wolfenstein etc fairly well. When it comes to games like Battlefield and Joint Operations the game always lags and stutters and it results in my internet connection being disconnected. This is quite strange as i always have good ping. I have looked across different forums and the general concensus is that an Ethernet connection is more reliable and better than an USB one. Has anyone else encountered this problem before? Which ADSL router is the most recommended for online play? My pc specs are: - P4 3.2 GHZ 120GB Hard Drive 512 DDR RAM GeForce FX 5950 Speed Touch 330 ADSL USB Modem Any suggestions would be appreciated, cheers!

In theory there really shouldnt be any problems, but obviusly there is. No routers are "made for gaming", get whatever you want that is compatible to your internet line.
