Random Spike Intervals

I use a laptop with a wireless connection, specifically
Intel® 8267LM Gigabit Network Connection
Intel® WiFi Link 5100 AGN

and it connects to a WRT54GS Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster (Linksys)

Sometimes when I surf the internet, I notice that there are random intervals where nothing on the internet loads, whether it would be pictures, a website, a sudden stop in downloading a file, etc.

Every time I play a game, I teleport in the game about 5-6 seconds ahead (specifically, in wc3 and sc2) and it really get irritating because I get a lag screen and then everything speeds up. This happens every 10 ish minutes.
I haven't had trouble with my old laptop, so I'm assuming it has something to do with this new laptop, but I can't exactly pinpoint what is the source. I don't think it's simply "wireless" connection, because my old laptop was also a wireless computer, yet it had no problems.

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
