Does it? My friend seems to insist so, but I tell him it's truw only if they are downloading something. Surely browsing the internet can't create lag or lower bar on gaming console right? If so, can anyone go into detail as to why it doesn't or does create lag?

Video steaming can cause lag youtube etc, also the number of the users connected to your network at the same time, but if you have a high speed connection if should not affect you.

A lot depends on multiple factors, like how many people are using it, speed of the internet, game your playing, the network you have setup-i.e. length and quality of cables, and of the router, etc.

If there is only 1-2 people using computers or laptops on the same network just browsing basic php,javascript and html web pages like bleepingcomputer for example then there should be no lag. Then again if they are all watching videos on a site like youtube or downloading a file bigger than 512mb then you may experience little bit of bad connection or lag..
