But we do have 4 devices that are connected to the wifi, 3 phones and an ipod touch. Can these devices slow the network even if they are not being used?
Of course they can, as can garage door openers, microwaves, etc.
Whats the network setup? Is the slow down from machine to machine when transferring files, or is it on t he internet?
What is you ISP supposed to be giving you?
