okay so i have the following problem, i recently build my pc from this forum =). so for some reason my pc connection either slows down by a lot or doesnt work even tho is connected. this usually happens when my bro turn his ps3 on and it automatically connected to the network and thats when it happens. but sometime its the other way around i would have connectivity and he wont, i been looking around for a solution to this but no luck yet.

im have a 35/35 dl/up, using verizon modem/router = actiontec
pc is using asus wireless adaptor pce n15
and my ps3

if 1 is off the other one works fine. also modem/router is in the living room and pc and ps3 are in the same room 5 feet away in its on desk/shelf.

It sounds like there may be an IP address conflict. Check to insure that each device is automatically getting assigned IP addresses by the router DHCP service. Also check each device (computer/PS3/whatever) to see if they are automatically getting an IP address or if they are using a static address that is the same as another device.

Take a look in the router configuration and see what addresses they are assigned when both are on, also check to see if any QoS settings are enabled.

You have a lot of wireless clients, most home routers start to have issues anywhere from 8-12 devices. It looks like that could be your issue. One solution would be another router configured as a wireless access point with a different subnet for all the phones.

Connect the D-Link with an Ethernet cable to a computer and you can access its configuration pages by typing its IP address in your browser. If you have any problems just reset it to factory defaults by depressing the rest button for 10 seconds, and then connect to its default IP via cable and configure it fully including its new IP address, which once done will make it only accessible at that address.

Once fully configured it will function as intended as a wireless AP with the desired address (that address must also be entered as a static or reserved dynamic address in your main router configuration -- the router that will control DHCP assignment (see address reservation in your main router manual for how to).
