Hello my bleeping friends. i hope this is where this goes, as i am a little confused on where to put it. A couple of weeks ago i was at my sisters downloading a movie (I know...shame shame), anyway everything is going fine, im getting 1.1 to 1.6 mbps. Went back a couple of days and nothing. I noticed that when her boyfriends ps3 is signed on my download and internet is slower than a snail. I tried bitlord and it did fine, but like utorrent it also quit while he is signed on. What would cause this and is there a way around it. I believe that he somehow throttled the banwith from the computer to the ps3, and i dont have access to there router. How he did this idk, he is a toy short of a happymeal when it comes to this stuff. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Bleeping friends.

Without router access resetting the router priorities is impossible.

Edited: After review from moderators it was determined the Op was only asking for help with general router issues.

lol how is it wrong...i just want to know if i can throttle the bandwith from the computer....not asking for advice on how to download my crap or surf the net..=..,, you must work for Obama.


P.S
If you read closly....while my utorrent is slow you will also see that the ENTIRE internet is messed up because of this. This is not asking for help on torrents. Thanks and have a great night.

First of all I certainly want to warn you against downloading illegal material using p2p (or whatever other means), as this is not only illegal, but also is very likely to bundle the latest malware with the latest movie and infect your computer that way.

Next, you mention you do not have access to the router; do you mean by that you cannot access that due to password or because the router is not physically accessible?
If a password is set and you or your sister/her boyfriend don't know it, then you can simply reset the router. The routers manufacturer site or user manual will tell you how to do this and what the default login is.

regards, Elise

Thanks....im not trying to be a di#% or annything....in fact i have gotten some cool FREE legal torrents. i was not sure if resetting the router would kick the settings, and didnt want to waste me time. The torrents i can do at home, but up there playing games on facebook is a pain long with everything else. Thanks again.

How are you connecting to the router? Wireless? How is the ps3 connected?

He more then likely has port forwarding, UpNp, DMZ enabled in the router. When you changed programs it changed the ports you were accessing that is why your speed increased. When your speed dropped back to null the ports were routed to the Ps3. There are tutorials All over the internet for him to use. They are very specific and easy to follow step by step. The only way to change these settings is to log into the route with the username and password that was set during setup.
