You cannot control the whole traffic pattern for the user, like blocking movie downloads and allowing using instant messenger. But you can Black list the user or restrict the band width (Option 2)
of the user. Option 1 is easy and more practical but it will not give you more control.

Option 1:

Go to web management page of Router. Mostly it is: 192.168.1.1 (Can be different in your case)

You have to go in security/Firewall, From there you black list the client on basis of MAC address.

In some Routers, you may have an option to block a specific port, like the port the user is using to download movies. (like from torrent clients)

The user will not be able to associate with the AP after this


Option 2:

You can achieve this by installing a custom firmware on the router. It will allows you to enhance/enable multiple other functionalities.

You have to make sure you have the right HW version of the Router that is A1,B1,B2
You can find all the supported router lists here :

http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices#D-Link

The custom firmware itself and the instructions to install it is here:

http://www.dd-wrt.com/

Remember that installing DD-WRT will provide you several features at the cost of voiding your warranty. If you are not comfortable with this then you can go for Option 1.

How to install a password in a DWL-2100AP


The usual setup IP address for DLink wireless routers is
192.168.0.1
and the user login = admin and no password is required.
If you have not changed the password and the default SSID then it is recommended that you set a password and change the SSID so that it will help prevent someone hacking into your DLink wireles router and changing your setings to their advantage..

Speed degardation


Routers, firewalls, and other network equipment usually cause a 10% overhead degrade in service. You may also want to check to see if the router has any QOS/Packet Shaping features for the wireless side, If so turn them off. Some routers do this to prevent un-wanted wireless intruders from hogging bandwidth.

Wirels connectiuon


you cannot just connect two routers one after the other- what you need to do is to set the wireless router as a "Wireless switch" - it means that it won't preforme as a router it will preform just as a broadcasting device.

you also need to set it to be on the same subnet that the first router is on- since you didn't specify the make and type of the first router it will be very hard to answer this question.
what I suggest is that you call the support of either the wireless router or the other router company and they let them know that you need to "set the wireless router as a switch to the first router" and they will be able to guide you how to do it.
