i have a roomate who has a wireless device and likes to dowload music and watch youtube videos and it slows down my wired game console.  i have an option on my modem settings allowing me to reduce wireless connection rate.  it is set at 54mdps now, can i lower it to 36mbps and will this allow the game console to not slow down when they are downloading?  i have a gateway 2wire modem.

I am not familiar with that setting. Sounds like it would work. Do you have a model number for the Modem?

Its likely that your wireless is not running at max speed anyways. You can try the change and let me know how it works out. Just remember what you did. Do you own the modem?
