So today, the Bresnan Internet guy finally came and set up our new 8.5MBPs modem. We bought a NETGEAR Wireless N 300 Router and I set it up. However.... the internet seems relatively slow, and the PS3 game lags sometimes. Why does this happen?

The Modem and Router are next to my moms TV and DVD Player... does this matter? Interference maybe? I'm not sure.

Any special settings in the router I can change (safely) to speed it up? Perhaps turn off the DHCP client since I would assume the separate modem assigns DHCP?

Thanks in advance,

Your devices need to be N enabled hardware devices. I'm not sure what's built into a PS3, but my Wii is only G, not N.

Where do you want to turn off DHCP? That's unlikely to be part of the problem, so I would refrain.

Do not turn off DHCP on the router if the internet connection WORKS.

How is the speed when plugged directly into the modem? Can you take two speedtests on http://speedtest.net/ ? Have one connected directly to the modem, the other when connected through the router.
