I'm a newbie to the forum I was recommended to come here from a friend who is a member, I usually can figure out the simple problems of everyday computers. But I got a new modem/router recently and frankly I think it sucks, It's a GT704WG Verizon Modem/Router, I have had two major problems with it so far. For some reason it makes the loading speed of my games way longer, like 3-5 minutes longer just to open up Call of Duty 2, I have reason to believe its the router due to the fact that when I tried it with my old Westell 2200 modem it opened perfectly. The other problem is the common one with playing online games with a wireless connection, the lag spikes that occur every 10-20 seconds, ping is usually close to that of a wired connection, then it just spikes, I was browsing other threads but found nothing to exactly help resolve the problem. I was thinking of getting a booster for it though im not sure about what to get or really anything about them and figured I should consult the pros here before I go blow some funds that come in rather slow for mee. Anyway Thanks.
