I have a Instant Wireless USB Network Adapter on my computer so i can get internet from the other PC in my house where the router is situated. The router i use is Wireless-G Broadband Router

I was just wondering if it was in any way possible to speed up my wireless internet connection? So i lag less when playin PC games?

Thanks in advance! :)

Instead of useing the wireless, Plug a cable in to the back of your router if it allows this and in to your computer

Here is a picture of the cable i mean...
