Hello friends. I'm really hoping someone can lend me some of their expertise to help me solve a problem. I recently moved into a buddies house. We're noticing a trend, that frequently when he streams on his computer, our internet will pretty much crash. It will start taking minutes to load websites. Other computers in the home that stream DO NOT do this. We have tried 2 different network cards, but swapping that didn't fix anything. We have replaced our entire network setup (new router, modem) in the process of fixing another issue. Perhaps what's going on is something we can adjust within our routers settings? I would be happy to share any information I can from the computer or network, but this is a situation that I've never dealt with before so I wouldn't even know what to post. If anyone has any hunch or lead, please let me know, whenever he streams I'm screwed. Thank you for your time!

Does the same thing happen if he accesses the same stream from another machine?

So his streaming is fine but the rest of the PC's connections slow down to a crawl?

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

You would want to engage the QoS feature on the router and give all connections a equal share of the total bandwidth.

I concur with Wand3r3r, his machine is favoured in the routers Quality of Service (QoS) settings, who set the router up btw?
