I think you are confusing a few things.

Routing is making sure data can get from one network to the other.

Gateway is usually the entrance point to another network, typically a router.

Data enters the gateway and then the router sends the data to where it needs to go.

Does this make any sense to you?

Yes, the gateway usually is the router, switch, or hub. Routing is the sending/receiving of data.

Routers do not slow down the internet unless someone else in your household/office is using up a lot of bandwith.

Hopefully you got the difference correctly. So what is the problem?

Router is that way. All you need is to configure it properly.

Isn’t that a called switching? A router splits networks. A switch or hub separates computers on a network. A switch is just a multi port hub
Is this correct?

You can have multiple computers hooked up to a router as well. I have a 4 port router at my house.

If you have four computers connected to a router, each on a separate port, then wouldn’t each computer have to be on its own separate network? If they are on the same network how can the router be routing?
If you’re talking about those devices (Linksys, netgear, etc.) that we all been calling routers (me included). I think that the four ports are actually switches? And the wan links a gateway, that’s the only part that does any routing. (from your network to the internet)

makes sense?

a gateway is just that a "gateway" which is used to access the internet through your ISP.

A router replaces a computer that connects to the internet, sorta like your old dialup, you can still use adsl like dialup on your computer using a bridged connection, but it's much easier to let a router do the work, then the router shares the connection to multiple clients sometimes.
