    Ok so i bought a new cisco 802.11n router..big upgrade from my 54mbps linksys 802.11g router. This goes to 130mbps wireless and 1Gbps wired ethernet. It even says it in my airport preferences 1000mbps and it says it is connected AND I can browse the internet.

    For some reason though, when trying to connect to the Onlive service, it says my connection isn't good enough and I have to quit. This is the only program that does this but it was fine on my old router which was much slower than the one I have now. Any sort of fix/reset to get this working?

    It's not your connection to your router

    Run a speedtest (I use speakeasy). If it shows your download test result is lower than 5mb/s than you will not be able to play.

    Oh ok well it is lower than 5mbps but this happened after I got the new router so what caused it if it isn't the router connection?
