However if you downloading or streaming videos on one then you'll notice it on the other. Best solution Kewlx25 January 13, 2012 1:27:34 AM Share The "Water pipe" analogy works extremely well for the internet. It doesn't matter how many taps you hook up to a water pipe, but how much water each tap tries to consume. Same thing with networks. As long as you don't consume more than about 90% of your bandwidth, you shouldn't notice any issues. eg. If you have a 30mbit line and Netflix is pulling down 5mbit and your video game is doing 1mbit, you still have 24mbit free. 90% is a good rule of thumb for networks. As long as you don't consume over 90%, your games should work just fine and you shouldn't have buffering issues for your streams. xXDIVISIONXx January 19, 2012 11:09:07 PM Best answer selected by xXDIVISIONXx. nikorr February 17, 2012 9:45:08 PM This topic has been closed by Nikorr Can't find your answer ?
