Is it Possible...

Is it possible that my games are lagging because of my Xbox LIVE Wireless Network Adapter?  I usually don't have problems with lag, even when my NAT Type was moderate.  As of now, my NAT Type switched back to moderate, but for the first time I am experiencing lag.  I take my laptop, iPod, etc. in the room where my Xbox is. The connection doesn't seem to suffer, so my question is: Is it possible that the lag I am experiencing could have to do with a faulty Wireless Adapter, and could switching to the Wireless N Networking Adapter help/fix my lag issue?

Thanks.

Switching adapters may help. I would contact your ISP and ask them what they think.

If it's only happening just now chances are it's a distance issue (the distance between where you are and where the people you're playing with are based) combined with your NAT being moderate.

Well I've been on LIVE for two years, and had rarely had lag issues.  Now, I lag pretty much every round/match I play, so I wouldn't think it would be distance if I didn't lag for the two years, but maybe.  And I'm guessing it's probably my NAT being Moderate, but that's where it throws me, because it had been Moderate before, but it never made me lag. It just made it so I couldn't connect to some of my friends.

**Update**

My NAT Type is now OPEN, and I get full bars when I am connected to Xbox LIVE, yet I still tend to lag quite a bit.  I am not understanding why I still lag.

What was the distance between you and the place you connected to so you could do the test?

If that's not too far from your location then I'd put my money on it being you connecting to people a bit further away or you've had lag and not noticed it because the games have done a decent job of hiding it. 18ms for ping does seem really low though even with a monster connection.
