How To Use Lag Switch?

Im just REALLY confused on how it works, I haven't tried it on my xbox but i did try using it with my computer to the router and all it did was turn off the local internet, and turn it back on again after flicking the switch! surely if it just turns off the internet to your xbox it would just sign it out!? do i have to flick it twice or what? i would just like some guidance on how to use it. Many Thanks
