    At times when my Internet is not connecting, I go to my AirPort utility and see all of the clients that are connected. Most are anywhere from 1Mb/s to 65 Mb/s. I will come across one that is 300 Mb/s. This morning it happened to be my wife's MacBook. The other day I could not figure out which one it was, as there were 9 clients. We have iPhones, iPads, iMacs and MacBooks through out the house. Is there a utility I can use to kill that client or the IP address?

    Thanks for the help,
    James

    You are probably misinterpreting those numbers. Those number don't represent actual data being sent. They represent the quality of the wireless connection with the base station. The higher numbers are actually better.

    Okay. That would make sense. At times I can't get connected with the internet, I'm assuming because one of my clients is using a lot of bandwidth. Is there a way I can tell which one? My son play games all the time and I blame it on him, could his gaming be a problem? Is there a way to kick a client?

    Thanks for your help.
