Anyway to block torrenting on my network? - Page 5

Hope that helps
For the record?

I once tried implementing this w/ DD-WRT and it made the entire router portion of my network slow as a turtle lugging a 20 ton shell on his back.

I had to re-disable QoS to be able to even access the freakin' router's config in DD-WRT without it taking till Satan started putting in ski slopes.

I am sorry but you are lying to him now? What kind of a person are you? Are you so afraid of this guy that you can't just be honest with him? He will eventually realize what is going on and then he will be three times as pissed. You sound just my Chinese exchange student roommate I had in the past, he was sneaky, would do things behind your back, and then lie when confronted. He was the worst roommate I had ever had.

So man up, be an adult, and hash it out with this guy. If you are going to start screwing with his Internet connection you better not keep collecting his 20%.

This should be as easy as saying.... "I pay 80% of the bill, and therefore im telling you that youre not downloading anything illeagally all the time".

If he doesn't like it... Make him get his own connection.

You could close up the port his torrent client is using but the problem is... the port in use can be changed within most bit torrent clients.

Blocking P2P connections could end up shutting down some gaming experiences as well, if they use P2P for online play.

At the end of the day.... The connections in your name, you pay for it, you'll be held responsible for what comes down it...

Use your routers ACL function to block access from his MAC address and refuse to take his 20% until he gets some sense or gets his own connection.

You assume he is paying 80% but he never said that. More likely is that there are 5 guys in the house so everyone is paying 20%. Meaning he doesn't pay any more or less than the OP. That is just supposition of course.
Anyway, that is not how it works. Once he takes his roommates money in exchange for Internet access he can't screw with his Internet connection. If he did his roommate could probably successfully sue for his money back for every month in which such interference happened.

Actually.. lets assume he is paying the 80%... Thats more than the majority therefore in business... Person A with 80% share gets overall say. Person B with 20% gets a say but doesn't have the majority vote.

Anyway end of that.

If it is equal 20% splits then you shouldn't be doing anything. To be honest if the authorities were investigating your internet activities and suspected illegal downloading... They would be round your house and taking away every computer in it, which would then reveal the culprit as your roomate, not you.

The biggest problem with that is, you know of his activities and havn't informed the authorities. Im not saying you should, but that would be held up against you if this ever went to court as a case.

So if this was me in your shoes, I would do the following:

If you pay 80%, then you tell him straight to stop. If he doesn't, then you refuse him internet access and don't accept his 20%. If he wants to take you to court and sue for it... Then so be it. But when the judge asks why you denied him internet access and refused to take his money..... His case won't have a leg to stand on and he will be in a bucket load of trouble. Your reason would then be perfectly understandable and accepted as the right thing to do.

If you pay an equal 20% split with other housemates, you need to hold a discussion and see if you all can't have a serious word. If he still refuses then you as a group have to decide if you want to bar him internet access or take the risk and let him continue. If you cut him out and he wants to sue... Same situation as above.

Going behind his back and altering the connection, using QoS, blocking ports etc... Is wrong on your part as his in contributing to the bill.

Place a router flashed with Tomato firmware between your ISP's point of entry and the wireless AP.

Use the Quality of Service (QoS) settings to throttle all traffic you deem unimportant or lower priority.

If all you do is surf the web, make traffic to ports 53, 80 and 443 highest priority and everything else lowest. Then define "highest" as 100% speed and "lowest" as 1-20% (depending on how many people your roomate is downloading from at once - 20x 1% connections or 1x 20% connection, you'll need to adjust it as needed or just leave it on 1%).

You'll both still have fast web experience, but torrenting will slow to a crawl (and online gaming if higher priority exceptions are not made for those games - half my QoS setup relates to WoW and Planetside and all the various ports and ip's they use).

That does not work for torrents. QoS on download and upload is only enforceable at the ISP.

I do not know why the OP is so afraid of being upfront with his roommates. He is so worried about torrents and getting in "trouble" yet does not even discuss the issue with his roommate.

OP is just going to cause problems with roommates like that.

20% is not even worth it when you get in trouble, and he gets to deny the whole thing.....cut him off and make him get his own......i'd personally pull a "what did five fingers say to the face" if he did that to me

I think it does help. Set it to throttle all traffic. Then selectively unthrottle certain things.
