Throttle Torrents

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone; I just moved into a new house with my brother and his girlfriend. We have decent internet for where we live, but I can't get any use out of it because they feel the need to torrent and then stream from the laptop to the PS3. It sucks up all my god forsaken bandwidth. Is there any way I can throttle the connection they use on the laptop, because I'm seriously getting tired of this chick taking all the internet up for her **** documentaries every day. Thanks OCN. Oh. I can't kill her either, so that options out.

I have qwest internet with a Zyxel modem (also from qwest).

Oh man, all i could think of was you blaming her for using up all teh internets, and her not leaving any internets for your interwebz.

Just go on her lappy and set bandwidth to low. or set download limits.

Set your PS3 to a high priority and her lappy to a low priority through your router

Is it possible to lower their PS3 and Laptop priority and raise mine? Would that be under QoS?

Ok! Thank you sir. Now then, does anyone know how to set up QoS? I've been looking at if for a couple of weeks, but can't really seem to wrap my head around it. My router is: ZyXEL Q1000z
