Currently I just have some wireless n router... I don't even know the brand because it came with my new Internet. That's all... I don't have an eithernet cable or anything. Just got into pcs and I'm loving it I've used pcs a lot through my life, just never could afford a gaming machine until now.

Well, still need more info.

First, what is your ISP and what is your package speed? Second, what router did they give you?

ISP is internet service provider. Who provides you the internet?

Here is a link I found for the modem- (appears to be comcast?) WR-5882
-edit-
Quote:
Support high data rate up to 300 Mbps while connecting with IEEE 802.11n devices
I saw in the above post you mentioned your speeds are 50 mbps and upload 7 mbps... If that is correct the current speeds you have do not exceed the current modem you have. Upgrading to a new modem would allow you to connect wireless devices that use the 5 ghz bandwidth but no additional speed. -edit-
