Not looking for help with a FIOS problem, so please read on.

I've had FIOS for about 5 years and most of that time I've had nothing but trouble keeping wireless devices connected to the standard router. Eventually I got a Netgear WNDR4500 and connected it by Ethernet to the FIOS router, and ran all my wireless devices through the Netgear router - my 3 wired devices went straight to the FIOS router - and this has been working fine.

Today I got one of the new advanced FIOS routers, but before I set up all my wireless devices on it, I started to think, and so here's the question. To get the best internet performance for my wired devices, especially playing games (Battlefield4), am I better off keeping the wireless devices on the Netgear router and let that handle the wireless traffic so the FIOS router only sees the 1 wired device, or should I put everything on the FIOS router, or doesn't it even matter.

Thanks,
Steve

It doesn't really matter. Assuming the routers are performing up to snuff and you have enough bandwidth on the network to go around, then it doesn't affect the internet speed to the device at all.
