Hello, I have a Netgear dg834 v1 and am wondering is there any software/firmware/router that based on "attached devices" (or local IP) - say if X-pc or Y-pc switch on will limit downloads temporarily on my pc to a level so that they(other family members) can browse and then once they shut down the speed is set to full again?

I don't think that sort of sophistication is normal on domestic routers.
If you could identify the sites from which the problem downloads originate you could block them in the router at peak family use hours.
Otherwise, if the little buggers are using wireless, cut them off as and when using the Access List feature.
