Wondering how I can limit Netflix bandwidth on home network

Hey guys, i'm sure this question has been asked a million times, but when googling i can never fully make sense of the answers as i am not very savy on networks/internet connections. also people seem to have different opinions and solutions on basically every site ive checked.

Anyway, my question as in the title is how do i limit the bandwidth netflix uses? i have a basic home interent set up, with mainly just my laptop using the internet and then my sisters smart TV when she is home watching netflix. those are the only 2 real users. I have great ping, very low ms when she is not watching netflix, but when she is video play back is very laggy unless i take the quality down to low, and game playing is a complete no-go.


so i am just wondering how i can reduce the bandwidth her smart tv uses when netflix is on, because it seems ridiculous to me that it would hog 80-90% of the network and make playing games impossible.


if anyone knows anything that can even helpout just a little that would likely help me.

thanks in advance to anyone that takes the time to respond!!

    depends on your hardware but could try turning on QOS. but almost sounds like you don't have enough bandwidth. how much speed do you pay for?
