Situation;

I want to limit the speed of the internet to others computer. I have 3 computers in total, 2 desktop and 1 wireless laptop. When i play game. The others computer in use start giving me some lag to my connection and some slow downs when they watch a video. I have a router. The product is D-Link WBR-1310. I went to http://192.168.0.1/ and there is no option to limit bandwidth to each computer. So i wonder if there is a possible way to limit others computer bandwidth? Such as an application?

I have 3 computer and 2 of them are connected to the router and 1 is wireless laptop. I cannot manage to limit their internet speed nor able to block any access. Is there a possible way to limit their internet speed through an application?

If there is an application that does the job very well and highly good one. Please mention it in your post. I am looking forward any application and willing to pay for one and hopefully soon and a working one.

Thank you

Do give this thread a read: Bandwidth limiting
Also note the list of bandwidth management tools that have been mentioned there.

There are only a couple ways to do this: 1) build yourself a router with an old PC and 2 NICs. 2) Buy a router that can do what you need, most business type routers will do this. Altho Cisco does make a series of routers that run their IOS and are directed more for more serious home networkers. As you would guess they are more expensive. A linksys router cost $70 or less while the Cisco routers I am taking about is $160+ and I mean + lol.

CCProxy might do what you want on an old PC.

There are templates out there that will get you REALLY close to what you want to do with the Cisco routers. You'd just have to do a little research on how to do Bandwidth shaping in the Cisco IOS.

In the end, there is no simple way to do it =)

Are there any software that does the job? Any recommended software instead of buying a new router?

And my D link WBR-1310 doesnt support QoS :/

I don't think so.
You'll need to configure the router to do that.

Did you read through the above article?

To do what you are talking about, it has to be done before the distribution point of your network. Which is at your router.

What would any software do? Think about it. You want to limit or distribute the bandwidth evenly to all on your network. If the connection goes: from a modem that is connected to a router then gets distributed to the PCs on your network, wired and wireless, where is this software going to go? The only place it can, on the router. QoS might do what you need but I don't think it will do it to the level you are looking for. So as I laid out there are 2 options: buy an expensive router or build your own.

A 3rd option is go into the router and shut off their connection, but if I were your roommate you'd do that once then I'd kick your ass but that's me lol.
