Hello, I have a question and I'm seeking some advice.
I am currently connected to my modem router via Ethernet cable, My son has an Xbox in his room and he is connected through wireless...
Can his gaming on the Xbox affect my internet and cause me to lag?
If so... is there any way that I can fix this?

If you are both sharing a single connection to the same internet service provider, then yes, whatever either of you do will impact the other.

The machines in your network are autonomous and work independently. Traffic to/from these all go through your router/modem and that's where you may be able to prioritize traffic. This is called QoS (Quality of Service) and many routers let you prioritize traffic based on several properties: source IP address, port number, etc.
