Hello all,\n\nI really need some help. I live in house with two other guys in the UK.\nWe have a linksys wireless router and share a broadband connection.\n\nBasically the guy downstairs is constantly downloading through torrent\nengines and go knows what, he basically takes all the bandwith, and I\ncan just about surf the web most of the time. He actually pretended the\nrouter was broken the other week so he could use a cable connection,\nwhen we tested the router it worked, but it is still hard to get any of\nthe bandwidth at the moment.\n\nI know what I need to do, set the router up so it shares the bandwidth\nequally between the three computers, I just do not know how.\n\nThe router I have is a linksys BEFW11S4.\n\nI have researched a little bit and found that I need to set up QoS\n(Quality of Service), however I think my router is quite old as it does\nnot seem to have this feature.\n\nI really am at my wits end because I rely on the internet to speak to\nmy family back home, as I have emigrated. I also enjoy playing games\nonline, but this is impossible. If I ever manage to get a good\nconnection he will unplug the router and plug it back in so he gets all\nthe bandwidth. When asked he just says the router does not work\nproperly, but when his computer is turned off (rarely) it works ok.\n\nI look forward to hearing some advice. Thank you.
