Welcome to the forums @Light 

What do you mean by 'limit the wifi'?

Also, the firmware you have is out of date - have you just acquired this router from somewhere, or have you had it a while? PN no longer supply this router with new connections.

@MatthewWheeler  - can you help the OP? Or do you no longer maintain the 582n?

I`m no expert.... but I don`t think you can "limit" your brother`s usage, and prioritse your own usage of the wifi signal..... Which is what you seem to be wanting do, from the above statement.

The only way you can do that, is to get hold of all his devices, and only let him have them, when you don`t need to play CS ! . Roll_eyes

Thing is he likes to "control" the internet basically wines at everything when i disable it so if i limit it he would think the internet is just acting up and not being good but my router is so old it cant even do that perfect....

Get a wired connection for yourself - better latency, faster speeds and more reliable.

Unfortunately that's brothers for you!

We weren't fortunate to have the Internet when I was a kid/living at home but the same sort of problems used to occur with shared things such as bikes, train-sets etc., so unless you can get a better router from somewhere maybe you'll have to just suck it up.

Black and white TV, with 1, 2, 3 and * as channels options;)

If you'd have told me then that one day a computer would connect to the world, I've have laughed my head off! (then hid due to the impending alien invasion)

Back then, there were trees to climb, brooks to jump, bikes to 'borrow' (postman's bike was fun, but gave it back), Hornby trains and mud to eat/throw/build, knock-a-door-run.

Anyone nowadays would think kids don't exist, no ropes from trees, banks overgrown, all bikes stolen and broken for parts, train sets in collectors hands, houses on all the playgrounds and cameras/alarms/barbed wire now.

Oh well;)

Back in the days of VHF broadcasting, we could only get BBC1 & ITV. Cry

Then the council erected a massive TV aerial and ran a wire around several hundred houses on the council estate and magically everyone got BBC1, BBC2 & ITV!

Still don't know how one aerial could supply so many houses.
