Bandwidth priority

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know of any software that allows whatever computer it is installed on to have priority? I know it sounds a little selfish and ridiculous. But there are 50 people sharing one line where I am living, and I just want to watch some dang YouTube videos...

I'm actually looking for a software to tell the router to give me priority. I live in a barracks and don't have admin rights to the router. The bandwidth is getting stolen from all the people playing xboxs and playstations.

That's not going to happen, then.

I found a software called netcut that kicks other people off. But that's not what I'm looking for. I also know it exists. I had an old room mate a few years back that used one. But sadly he does not remember what he used.

The only thing you can do on your side is optimize your PC. You can do it to prioritize traffic on between your applications, but doing it to the network is not possible.

Alrighty. Thanks for the feedback!

you need to have access to the router to modify any QoS settings so unless you are chummy with the admin, you are SOL. sorry..
