Xbox Live + BT Home Hub 3 + Xbox Slim Wireless N

My xbox is connected to a BT HH3 Via ethernet. All games show as OPEN, Which i thought was great news. But for some reason it seems a bit sluggish, compared to any normal wireless N Router.
my question is, When i connect the Xbox to the HH3 wirelessly, it seems to not want to go over 72mb/s (connection speed) whereas this laptop im using now, connects at the full 300mb/s and the xbox is closer!
ive tried adding the xbox live application to my xbox's ip address. ive even tried DMZ that seemed to make things worse.
am i best off keeping it connected with a cable? or is there some way to make the xbox produce a better speed wirelessly than 72mb/s, as im sure 300mb/s would be better than ethernet? (100mb/s)
am i wrong? PLEASE HELP!!!!
cheers. Scottmg

I'd say cable everytime for gaming.
Even at 72Mb the speed should be much higher than the speed you are connected to internet at, but any latency caused by using wireless may cause issues whilst gaming.
Has anyone seen my signature, it's gone missing.
