    Is it ok if you are cabled to your Router rather than wirelessly connected?
    I find that a wireless connection isn't reliable enough to play online video games due to packet loss.

    Are you far from the wireless access point? Are there walls or doors closed or anything that gets in the way of your wireless connection? Things like that can make a difference.
