Okay so I keep having a problem with connect to websites sometimes... And not only that but my ping jumps in games like you wouldnt believe... We use a netgear router... I dont know why and I wish we didnt.. Im hardwired in so its not a wireless problem... Anyone have any ideas??? Is it maybe just a really bad router?

Try connecting hardwired to your modem. If it's still the same, it's just traffic on your internet line. I'd advise calling a tech and asking them to check your connection on their end.

Duffy is going in the right direction. You can diagnose router issues by simply connecting directly to your modem. In my opinion, the best routers out there are the new Linksys routers.

Thats what you get from the "cheapie" route. My first router was a Netgear. Had problems with it from jumpstreet. I took it back and got a DLink. Problem solved. Now I've got a D-Link N Router. No problems with it.

In my opinion, go with a D-Link or Linksys.
