QOS on router bandwith controll
Posted on 2010-03-31
i have a home network where 5 computers share one internet line.
on a good day we have 50 mbit download and 1.5 mbit upload
I have a D LINK DIR - 165 router.
one of the users on the network is using a P2P video program, that uses all the upload bandwidth.
i cant stop this user using this program. i have tryed to install a bandwith shaper on her P.c wich worked on all the other computers in the house but sadly not on hers.
her OS was XP and the rest where vista and 7
i have herd that this P2p program switches ports a lot so cant be blocked by closing ports. maby this is why the shaper did not work on her computer.
this p2p program is boging down the hole net. how can i share the bandwith out between the 5 computers so people cant be over greedy.
i have tryed using QOS in the router page. it seems my router only alaws me to change the uplink to the router and not to individual computers. so am stuck with slow internet. with jolty 500 pings every other second. - (i have asked for more upload from my ISP but they say its allready max they can give)
