Limit bandwidth to a certain ip?
Posted on 2005-04-25
My main use for the internet at home is porn, online games, news, porn (in that order) so ping is VERY important me for and my online games.
In about 2 weeks iam going to be moving in with 2 friends. Were planning on getting one comcast cable internet line but there is a problem. Since me and one roomate pretty much just use the intrnet for online games it should work out fine. The problem is the 3rd roomate. He is ADDICTED to torrets and having his own ftp sharring with his warez buddies. Everytime i try and play a online game at his house i cannot get a pink under 300! even tho we have the same provider and service.
Since thats pretty much all he uses the internet for i cant ask him to stop (plus i get access to all the free movies) and it kills my ping we decided to just get 2 internet lines. The problem is, THATS 120$ A MONTH JUST FOR INTERNET!!! AHHHHHHHH!H!H!H!
So my question is, is there anything i can do or buy to to split the internet 3 ways? not just bandwidth, but whatever it is that torrents use that kills your ping! i dono if its requests or what.
I have a nexland isbpro 800 router that has all sorts of nifty things but i dono if it has anything for that....?
again, not just a way to split the bandwidth, but a way to let him download his torrets, and let me have a good ping for online games.
