Iphone hogging bandwidth

Hi everyone, I'm having an issue with my wireless connections on a home network.
An xp desktop is connected to the wireless Dlink DIR-655 router, with another win7 desktop, wireless D-Link AirPremier DWL-G550 Wireless PCI Adapter.

Now the culprit is an iphone which is snailing everything. The router is set with all the normal security features and runs fine until that darn android is connected.
Do I have to set up the Qos or what do you think?

Rather than set up to Qos, you should recalibrate the internal
bandwidth acquisition interface using a power driven hand-held
decimater. Just place the Android on a sturdy surface, like a
garage workbench, and proceed to open up the device directly
thru the user interface screen utilizing a regular household
hammer. Once inside you should be able to see the internal
bandwidth acquisition interface and recalibrate it with the claw
faced attachment on the reverse side of the hammer using
sharp downward blows until you reach the desired level
of bandwidth for that device...

Hope this helps

As I do not have such a device to carry out the recommended operation, I do have 5 pound ball peen hammer welded onto a 1 foot steel air pipe with a nut welded onto the end for grip. which might do the job.
Oh smooth sailing and happy internet surfing, here we come!

Dont know if this is relevant to an iphone but I ran in to issue before concerning the aes and tkip encryption. Might want to check the router settings and change one to the other to check if that helps.

if its an iphone 5, any of the 5's, then its just the phone. I have the same problem here, anytime an iphone gets on the network nothing works well. When there's 2 iphones however, i cant even load the ats main page all the way. The problem is that every time you connect an iphone to wifi it uploads your entire life's story to apple. I would suggest going into the settings on the phone and turning off all auto sync options that you don't use, especially pics. I believe it's under settings > icloud
