A new router will most likely NOT help you.  This is because your router should be much faster than your internet.  Your internet bandwidth is the problem.  If someone is streaming netflix or youtube your connection will usually suffer.  If you want to solve this problem you may want to upgrade your internet service to a faster speed.  That will help more than purchasing a new router.
