1, You should always secure your Wireless. 2, try different channels, setup the dual-bands as 2 SSID, 1-2.4 and the other as 5.0 with diferent channels. I would suspect it's the laptop, Disable the UAC and the Anti Virus. Is the wireless adapter, on the laptop turned on? Do you see the Wireless listed in Available Wireless Networks? For dual-band setup :http://www.pcworld.com/article/229521/dlink_setup_a_wireless_router.html
That doesn't seem right. When your wife connects, is she using wireless as well or is she on the LAN? You can attempt to change the channel inside the configuration utility in the d-link, but her logging on the LAN or wireless for that matter should not interfere with your performance at all. Weird. Many variables that could be causing this.
No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.
Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".
What is your router? Try changing the MTU value of the router. You can see it in the configuration page.
The default is 1500. try lowering it to like 1490 first then 1450 if it still didn't work. You can use up to 1400.
try to bring another laptop to the location where you are having problem and see if the other laptop will have the same problem. if thats the case the problem is with the router. You can try upgrading the router's firmware or change the wireless channel
