Motorola SGB900 and gaming

Specs: Windows XP
Okay, I just got a Motorola SGB900 gateway, and got it all nice and set up. It connects perfectly to websites with a number of browsers. Im having issues connecting to EVERY game i've tried to play, from WoW to little online shockwave and flash games. I have taken the time to open the ports for the games I am trying to connect to, and still no luck. What am I missing?

A quick google of that devices says it's wireless. This may not be the problem at all but from personal experience I can tell you that wireless sucks for gaming. If you can plug in your computer, do so and try it, do you connect when wired?

I had little to no issues when I was playing on my previous wireless router, and this one runs much better for everything else. I dont think it has anything to do with it being wireless =(

Well, I'm really glad you don't think it has to do with the wireless but if you'd like help, how about trying my troubleshooting step and answering the question.

If you can plug in your computer, do so and try it, do you connect when wired?

Just FYI, when I say "if you can plug in your computer" I mean, plug it into your router. If you can't you may have to go directly from modem to PC. The point is, figuring out if the issue is your wireless network or not.
