i use a good router, but there are too many people using it, which results to a very slow latency for me. i was wondering how can i get off this router (if possible) and if i can connect to the internet a different way.

well the reason for a router is to route the 1 internet connection to more then 1 person. for say a person on wireless and another person connect directly to it. without a router only 1 person can be connected at a time. the reason it is slow is because everybody is using all the bandwidth. under these connections there are a few options.
1. disconnect everyone elts and you connect directly to the dsl/cable modem.
2. upgrade the connection speed from your isp
3. buy a new internet connection just for you.
4. complain to everybody that the connection is slower and you need it badly.

what i would do is call the Internet Service provider and ask them if you can have your internet connection upgraded (and how much it cost to do so).

normaly isp's have levels of connections.

Another option is delete the other peoples router ID. (The people sharing your connection).
