you get good pings the problem with it is interference. if your phone and router or anything else has the same frequency (mhz) it will most likely get intreference constantly therefore loosing your internet connection... my sudgestion is sell that wireless one your getting and get a cheaper BETTER wired router

Yea make sure you have everything in your house on differnt freq.'s because if they interfere bad pings. But if not you should get maybe a 1-10 MS more ping then a wired router.

The main concerns for game ping is not in routing but on the gameserver side. Choose your servers wisely and your ping will be superb, even with a ISDN line.

A wireless router will be capable of handling speeds way higher than what your ISP is currently providing you with. Unless you dont have 100mbps fiberoptics..
