when I signed up with my ISP they gave me a spa2102 VoIP linksys router. it only had one port and i really needed the wireless for my laptop so i went and got a linksys E2000 router which im piggybacking off my wired router (i still need the VoIP). my problem comes with getting lag in online games on my xbox 360 and PC games. i dont get any lag when im just using the wireless router but i get lag when i piggy back the wireless off of the wired VoIP router (or just using the VoIP router alone). I called tech support and the guy told me that getting a 5 port network switch would solve the problem, but im curious if that would even do anything because of what little i understand its essentially just adding ports onto my router which is still going to leave me with the lag problem or is this completely wrong? if you have any advice on if the network switch is the way to go or not please let me know, all help is appreciated.

buy the switch and hang it off the voip router. connect your wireless router to the switch via one of its lan ports not the wan port.

problem solved.
