Bandwidth sharing?
« on: September 23, 2012, 07:05:46 pm »
So at my house we have 4 computers connected to the same network.Total speed is 5 down and 1/2 up more or less.The problem is two of the computers are always playing some sort of MMRPG and they hog ALL the bandwidth.So much so that even that my computer, which is wired directly to the router, will fail to load pages.All other computers are wireless.two of them gaming,ones a macbook which seems to do fine,then my computer wired directly into into the router.

I am just wondering if there is a way to throttle each computer's bandwitdh,Internet speed is fast enough to be evenly split and run everything including my xbox 360 on LIVE.Its just the two computers that are on that MMRPG take pretty much everything.Upgrading to a faster network might be possible but then it would be capped.Currently our internet has no data cap so its nice any faster though is capped at like 20 gb.

    Yes there is, but you need the right router.  Many common routers' software give wireless applications priority so they don't drop their connections.
