This program will scan and find any other wireless networks around and give you information on them such as what channel they're using.
Try to choose a channel as far away from others for best performance.

Did it happen when you were using your old router?
Also, to test weather as you believe it is your line or not go to http://www.pingtest.net/ and run that test. This will test the jitter, packet loss and ping of your line. Post back your 'grade' when you get one.
Here is a list of information on each 'grade'
Understanding Your Line Quality
We give each test result a grade to help you interpret the overall quality. We also show the specific packet loss, ping and jitter values that make up your grade. When we are unable to measure one or more of them you will see a grade of N/A. Certain firewall configurations, Java not being installed or other technical issues can cause this, but it is possible that simply testing again will fix the problem. Feel free to test often, and read on to learn more!
An excellent result! Expect all Internet applications to work very well assuming you have sufficient bandwidth. Use Speedtest.net to see.
MOS greater than 4.37 (Example - a ping below 50 ms with 0% packet loss)
Very good! Your connection should work well for any Internet application. Some online games may not perform optimally.
MOS between 4.28 and 4.37 (Example - a ping around 90 ms with 0% packet loss)
Acceptable. Your VoIP quality will suffer some, and you will have a disadvantage in many online games. Most streaming media will be fine. You should try testing again to another server close to you.
MOS between 4.00 and 4.27 (Example - a ping around 150 ms with 1% packet loss)
Concerning. Most online applications will not perform well but should function in some capacity. Try testing to other servers to verify the result. You might need to contact your ISP for help.
MOS between 2.50 and 3.99 (Example - a ping around 300 ms with 3% packet loss)
Very poor. Real-time Internet application performance will suffer greatly on such a connection. Test to other servers to confirm the result, but definitely talk to your ISP about troubleshooting the issue.
MOS lower than 2.50 (Example - a ping above 500 ms with 20% packet loss)

Although this could be a big factor it could still be something with the router set up or the router itself. Have you tried switching back to your old router again to see if the problem persists with that?
I don't think the IPv4 or 6 is anything to worry about. This is just the protocol being used.
for more information on this take a look at http://www.whatismyip.com/
Static IP: One that is fixed and never changes. This is in contrast to a dynamic IP which may change at any time. Most ISP's a single static IP or a block of static IP's for a few extra bucks a month.
IP version 4: Currently used by most network devices. However, with more and more computers accessing the internet, IPv4 IPs are running out quickly. Just like in a city, addresses have to be created for new neighborhoods but, if your neighborhood gets too large, you will have to come up with an entire new pool of addresses. IPv4 is limited to 4,294,967,296 IPs.
IP version 5: This is an experimental protocol for UNIX based systems. In keeping with standard UNIX (a computer Operating System) release conventions, all odd-numbered versions are considered experimental. It was never intended to be used by the general public.
IP version 6: The replacement for the aging IPv4. The estimated number of unique IPs for IPv6 is 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 or 2^128.
The old and current standard of IPs was this: 192.168.100.100 the new way can be written different ways but means the same and are all valid:
