You're gonna spend about $100 for a decent wireless router with QoS... Unfortunately I have yet to see lower end routers support this

or buy a cheaper router that supports DDWRT and flash it

You can block internet access by IP and MAC with that router but I don't see any options to limit bandwidth per IP/MAC. You can set it so it blocks an IP address on certain days and at what time on those days but that's about it.

I used to have this router and I think there is a setting that switches the router between 10mbps and 100mbps. I think its the speed for the WAN connection but I'm not sure. If your ISP has your download set higher then 10mb/s then changing this may help (But I don't see anything for it in the manual but I remember it being a setting, maybe it's on a newer firmware?).

I now use a WRT54G v5 with the dd-wrt firmware installed. It has QoS so you can set how much bandwidth your sister's PC can use. It also has better port forwarding abilities then the DI-604. If you ever get a different router you can find one of these pretty cheap.

Do you know if your sister has peer2peer applications running at startup that she doesn't use half the time? If so just set them to not run at startup. Doing so would give you a bit more bandwidth and make her system run a bit faster (if you need an excuse).

If you really want a new router, I suggest this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833320023

sometimes it's on sale with a rebate making i around ~35.

Fully DDWRT capable, and the only G router i'd buy for home use. There's an N version that also does DDWRt but it's significantly more expensive. And mentioned before, enable DDWRT's QoS function. I did that to my old roommates back in the day when they would torrent while I was on WoW.

Can someone confirm if this one has QOS?

This router supports QoS and access restriction for $45 + shipping.

I picked up a Wrt54g for $20 at my local goodwill computer store. If you have one you should check it out.

Not all WRT54G are made the same. Version 8s (you can check on the label on the underside) really sucked.
