Sorry if this is the wrong section, but my families main computer is connected to the router and modem, and my computer is running off of a wireless network adapter, and my little brother tends to play games a lot online. So whenever I download a game on steam (No I don't torrent games lol) or am broadcasting on justin.tv his latency shoots up. I was just wondering is there a way to split internet connections? as in I can do that stuff without effecting his latency?
My router is : Belkin F5D7230-4
If this question doesn't make sense i'll be glad to clarify.
Yep, Netlimiter does allow him to limit specific application throughput. I do think his router supports traffic shaping, but Netlimiter is likely the simpler solution. Good idea, it hadn't occured to me.
The whole point of the bandwidth restriction is so that you leave some bandwidth for your bro to play game. You can adjust how much bandwidth to suit your situation. Download the trial and try to see if it works before you buy.
