I have an older NetGear router that I would like to continue using, but two other users on my network refuse to share the bandwidth. When you look through the menu in the router there is no option for QoS (Quality of Service) or assigning packet priority. Would I be able to use port triggering to produce the same effect as the QoS? If so, would using this feature still provide me with the protection of the firewall? I want to make sure that I am not opening myself up to any security issues.

As far a I can tell Port Triggering only activates when data is sent outbound and speeds up all incoming packets. Would this provide my computer with priority over packets for my internet connection as a whole? I do not want to produce a server or run dedicated ports for gaming. My only goal is to maintain web surfing and video streaming capabilities while the two other computers run games and cannot affect me.

Should I allocate all available ports for Port Triggering? Any help setting up would be most appreciated. I would like the other two computers to have full internet access and only slow down for as long as it takes to load a web page or youtube video so that I can actually get some work done. A new router while preferable would only alert the other people that I am trying to use bandwidth. Unfortunately, my household revolves around gaming and my school work as well as surfing the web does not take precedence.

Thank you in advance.

I would prefer to do it without the use of a paid program.

I would also like to find out if there is a way to figure out if someone went on my computer and used throttle in terminal. If they did how do I go about restoring my computer to normal.

I should have mentioned that was just an ad that you can actually close out.

That guide was just the basic how to for port forwarding. What port should I use for a triggering port? The router says to use anything other than port 80.

I tested port triggering using port 50 for triggering and opening ports 7- 16080. My computers internet worked flawlessly, but when I tested the one other other two computers on the network the internet was barely working and it notified me that another computer was using its ip address. How do I go about fixing both of these issues?
