    Well I've had this wireless network set up with a max of 11mbps. Everytime I play a game, it will lag every few minutes. Is there anything I can do to stop this or is it just because my connection is slower with the wireless network?

    If you don' t have this problem ( lag ) while downloading a huge file ( for instance the ISO for latest mandrake) then i believe it's the game sever ( possible to be overloaded, dropping connections etc.. so try a different servers with the lowest ping time).
    On the other hand if you have the lag problem when downloading huge files the might want to :
    a. see if there is a firmware update for the Access point.
    b. re position the wireless ( higher up and toward the middle of the room)
    c. switch to a different channel ( try 6, 11 etc.. )
    d. if you have a 2.4 Ghz and a microwave owen, might want to disconnect them to see if that causes the problem

    Wireless is not the ideally networking solution for high bandwidth. The above tips would be a good place to start. However 11MBps is the theoretical maximum and its usually much slower then this especially with overhead functions.
