Our house uses a Wifi Belkin cable router with up to 7 users (54G cards)on a 2Mb line.
The problem is as soon as 1 person decides to download, others usually lose their bandwidth to the point that no traffic goes through (except person downloading).
The router firmware doesn't appear to be able to handle bandwidth limits (no option on interface) so am stuck trying to balance the share of bandwidth between users, in order to garantee that ALL can be online at the same time.
Does anyone know of a solution excluding an internet gateway server? Maybe somes soft client that can be installed on the culprit machines (or inconsiderate users!)? any ideas?
