Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
Certainly by releasing and renewing your routers connection it is most likely dropping the other wireless clients (resetting DHCP), and or interrupting their downloads. If some of the wireless clients are unattended (and downloading) the may not be renewing their IP address immediately. Therefor the performance increase.
To confirm this check the number of DHCP clients logged into the router before and after you run the wizard and or reset the router
You may wish to inform your roommate that they are liable for it\'s use. For example the downloading and uploading of child ****. Lets face it, if your want to do something illegal or questionable on the internet... better to use someone else\'s account!
If they still want to keep the network unlocked, perhaps powering it off when it isn\'t in use will help.
