Modem Losing Performance?

I would definitely replace the modem if it is 8 years old. I find it extremely rare for a modem to even last that long.
However before you go ahead with that, you may want to give your ISP a call and see if there are any known issues with your internet connection. That wouldn't explain the wireless issue but maybe the high ping and video buffer etc...

A gateway is a network point that acts as an entrance to another network
So considering the internet is an "interconnected network", your modem is a gateway that lets your computer gain access to another network (the world wide web).
I suggest to replace the modem. For simplicity, I recommend a modem that has network ports and wireless all-in-one. If you need more ports, add an unmanaged switch.
