Alright...Disregard that last. Its definitely the smartphone. Going into the router's wireless status I see it does connect at 1-5Mbps, whereas everything else does at 70+ usually, so I guess everything is held back by the slowest link.

When the phone is on 3G it doesn't seem to change anything, it only hurts performance when on Wifi.

So when the smartphone is connected via WiFi, all other devices connected run at the same speed?

It looks that way. Whenever it connects the router reports its at 1-2Mbps, and everything else is still reported at 70+, but from the computer itself it is very apparent the speed is slowed down to the lowest rate.

Possible that the router can't support both a slower speed and a faster speed from 2 different devices connected at the same time. It could be trying to compensating for the slower connecting device.
