Hello, I have constant packet losses and other network related problems, that affect my gaming experience. I believe the problem lies in fact that I'm connected to Internet wirelessly via Wi-Fi router. My question is, if I connect my PC to router's LAN port, will it prevent Wi-Fi related problems and will I be able to use the wireless function at the same time? E.g. I play a game while my PC is connected with cable to router, and at the same time I can connect my phone to Wi-Fi.

Any help will be appreciated.

Yes you can do what you want. Having devices connected to the LAN ports on a router don't inhibit the WIFI. All your connections still share the same WAN bandwidth, so if you have a low bandwidth ISP connection, your multiple devices will still impact each other.
