I was having the exact same problem, as you are, with my 360 and GRAW. I was hosting games with 5 to 10 players, all buddies locally in the same city and i was getting some real bad lagging and echoing from the voice com. As I am a Data Technician for my ISP I knew for 100% that the lag was not from my ISP and i found this out by disconnecting the router and connecting the 360 directly to the cable modem and hosting that way. After doing this for about 2 weeks just to get a lag free game i decided to research my Linksys router and discoverd that by configuring the settings within my router i could optimize my gaming performance. Now Im lag free while still connected to the router.
Your router is different than mine, so you will have to research it yourself from the manufacturers websight. Here is where you want to go, to find out what you need to do:
3rd Party Setup Instructions
To get you pointed in the right direction, this is what all I changed on mine:
1) Set Device Priorities by MAC Address. Meaning I put the MAC from my 360 as the Highest Priority and the MAC's from the 2 Desktops as the lowest Priorities.
2) Enabled DMZ Hosting by the 360's IP Address.
3) Manually set my Wired QOS Upstream Bandwidth to the max bandwidth for my connection type.
If you need any additional help with the getting the MAC addresses or anything not router specific let me know and I'll be happy to assist you further. If you would like to get killed repeatedly on GRAW look me up on any sunday night from 10-12 (CST) as gamertag: SpaceCowboy706

I got your text message on XBOX Live the other day and I forgot to reply back. It is much easier to just use the internal NIC MAC address, as there is no benefit to changing it. Follow these steps to get it:
1. From your 360 Dashboard go to the SYSTEM tab
2. Go to NETWORK SETTINGS
3. Go to EDIT SETTINGS
4. Scroll to the right for ADDITIONAL SETTINGS
5. Then scroll down once to ADVANCED SETTINGS/HOST NAME/ALTERNATE MAC ADDRESS and press the "A" button
6.Bottom left hand of the sscreen is your MAC Address
Sunday night from 10:00 to 12:00 PM (CST) I host for GRAW and usuallu draw a good crowd... if you think your good enough to hang in there with us
