I have a Netgear DG834G wireless router which i connect to the internet via AOL My problem is the connection cuts out, mostly when I am playing games such as Red Faction. My internet works OK, i am able to access most sites via Mozilla Firefox and sites that I cant access, i CAN if i load up the AOL browser. All is OK but when i start playing games, the connection is OK, i get 30 ping for about 1 minute, after that ALL HELL BREAKS LOSE and my ping jumps into the 9000 region, it hangs there for a while, then after 2-3 mins it comes back down to 40. This cycle repeats.. and its VERY annoying vbecause it makes games unplayable. I also notice that when i enter a game and i dont spawn (dont start playing), the ping stays at a good 40-50 and doesnt change. When I do start playing, after about 20 secs the ping jumps to 9000 and my connection drops for 1min and then it returns.
