Default Router Causing Lag

I have recently upgraded to a linksys WRT150N version 1.1 and I get bad lag issues when playing World of Warcraft. I basically get lag that happens every fifteen seconds or so and can last from two seconds to ten. I narrowed the problem to the router because the only thing that changed in my setup was the router.

I have upgraded it with the latest firmware and am desperately trying to find a solution. I put up a ticket with blizzard's technical support but am still awaiting a response. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you connecting wirelessly? If so, what are you connecting with on the other side? If it is from a different manufacturer (i.e., not made by Linksys), there are some incompatibility issues between manufacturers of 802.11n devices.

Thanks, it was my N wifi reciever in conjunction with my router that caused the problem.
