From there it goes again via a network cable to my main PC.

Would it help to take the cable straight from the wall to my PC.

I would then have to introduce a firewall for my PC (prob zonealarm) Does anyone know if this would help?
The delays of a directly wired connecton to a router is negligable. Most of the issues of latency comes from 'shared' bandwidth, which is not the case here... (The exception is the use of 'wireless' routers, where you can get conflicts in the use of the shared 'wireless frequncy' bandwidth...)
