Belkin wireless router priorities

  [DELETED] 17:46 13 Jun 2006

Hi, i was wondering whether it is possible to set priorities on a belkin wireless router. I have a computer and laptop but if both are connected it slows the Pc down greatly. Is it possible to make the PC have more bandwidth or are they assigned equally?

I can so no reason why it would slow down "greatly". My Belkin 7632 (you have neglected to mention your model, variant and rev) variously has up to four clients - two by cable and two wireless - and suffers no appreciable contention.

Sorry i was at my girlfriends and couldnt remember model etc. My router is a 54Mbps ADSL modem and wireless G router 7632. IS that all the data?
I mainly run World of Warcraft on my PC and that uses alot of bandwidth as if i run MSN or a download at the same time it slows down the game alot. If someone else in the house uses the laptop it slows the game too so i assumed it was due to shared bandwidth.
Is it possible to 'assign' th ePC more bandwidth as all the laptop is used for is web browsing, no downloads or games.

Thanks for your help

There are more 7632 variants than you can count on one hand!

It is not possible to influence or prioritise bandwidth allocation; it works on a first-come first-served basis.

LOL ok well in that case is there anything i can do to sort out bandwidth issues?
Sorry im not very good with wireless networks.

Stop playing World of Warcraft or whatever it is when everyone else needs internet access. Better than potentially having arguments in the house!
