improving ping

Today we have gone from using a pci modem to an adsl router to connect to plus net adsl. My brother is saying his ping whilst playing quake 3 is terrible. Is there anyway to improve it? The router is an etec 4 port thing and I'm sure I remember someone saying they got a good ping whilst playing a multiplayer game.

Any suggestions?

TIA

improving ping

You should obtain better pings while usign a router, than using a PCI modem.

After installing this, you will need to re-apply the settings, performed by the +net "Network Optimiser".

This tool adjusts each network interface seperatly. IE, it optimised the PCI modem, and not the NIC perviously.

Thanks for the reply, his ping has improved. He is now saying lag is worse that it was with the PCI modem. Are there any ways to reduce lag? Anything I can configure on the router? TIA.
