How do I tell if I've maxed out my router bandwidth limit?

You will notice a drop off in internet access speeds.

 

This depends on three things - the capacity of your download connection; the number of devices you have connected at one time to the network; and the download capability of each device.

 

As an example, if my wife is sitting in the living room playing with her tablet there is no visible effect on my capacity in my 'office'. If she happens to be streaming a golf competition, as she often does, I have to be more careful or the golf starts 'buffering' and she gets annoyed !  As a dutiful hen-pecked husband this is a situation I try to avoid !

why don't you go into your router settings and give her device priority so it doesn't effect her connection as much?  if you router doesn't support that feature then just buy a new one that does.  but most do now.
