Optimum connection for games?
 
What type connection is better for games, cable or DSL? What speed is necessary? Upload or download more important? Is there a difference between latency and lag?I currently have cable (3 Meg down/up unknown) and seem to have a lot of issues; mainly involuntary disconnects and lag. The game (COD4) has a killcam and what is see replayed when my character is killed is not what just happened. From the opponents perspective (killcam) I may be shooting in a different direction or just standing there like a dork while he guns me down. The problem is this; from my perspective, I know I was shooting back. I'm fairly certain this is lag and wonder if there is a cure?

I have verizon fios, with my PS3 hooked up wirelessly through my router with a pair of these:

I have 1.5mb up 512kbps down DSL. I experience no lag PC gaming and 90% of the time no lag on Xbox Live. Unless its an issue all the other players are having at that time.
