Not enough bandwidth to browse the web (streaming)

Hello,

I have the following problem:

I'm sharing my internet connection with several people and it seems that whenever someone is streaming (e.g. a movie) I can't get online at all (I can't even get on Google). I'm convinced that there must be a solution to this problem.

I don't mind if someone else gets more bandwidth than I do, ... but if someone else gets a tonne of bandwidth then I at least want to get enough bandwidth to get on Google, Yahoo or YouTube (Note: we have Virgin Fibre which should have plenty of bandwidth).

Many thanks in advance,

HA

you have to at your router enable some sort of QOS User generated image

Hello David,

Thank you for your reply, but how do I get there?

When I go to "My Computer" (I'm running Windows Vista) and then to "Network" I can see the Netgear router.

When I double-click on it nothing happens and when I right-click on it I get the following options:
- View device webpage
- Disable
- Delete
- Create shortcut
- Properties

Many thanks in advance,

HA
