will it help reduce 'lag' when many computers access my current wifi?

I have 3 xbox's, 2 pc's and 2 iphones that connect to my wifi, and it slows down due to the bandwidth being shared, will airport extreme help this?

    Lag is relative and really based on what device is doing what at any given time. Judging by your setup, I'd say your iphones have little to no effect. The major culprits here are probably the X-Box's which eat bandwidth up when playing on xbox live...add some downloads to those pcs and you're gonna be suffering quite a bit.

    What you may need is a better internet connection because your bandwidth just isn't doing the job.

    If you router is old and needs to be updated that's the first culprit though.
