When my family is streaming media (480 quality) of (asian movie website) and I am gaming at the same time, my ping jumps from ~50 to ~300. I am wondering if there is anyway for me to reduce the ping while streaming media. Are there some settings in my router? I am using a Linksys WRT54G with dd-wrt firmware.

Speedtest says I have a 16.8Mbps download and 0.42Mps upload. Streaming a 480 quality video takes no more then 2Mbps according to the network widget. Gaming does not require very much bandwidth either.
