Not all Internet traffic is equal. Streaming HD video or having a stutter-free Skype call is probably more important to you than downloading a big file. The Quality of Service feature on your router lets you prioritize the things you care about, so they happen faster than the things you don’t.
My main problem is that my sister wouldn’t stop using YouTube and stuff while I’m playing online. It causes heavy lag most of the time. I have tried to turn off the WiFi but she wouldn’t accept it. So I want to limit her bandwidth so she could still use the connection without causing lag.
I have an occasional room-mate, my nephew, who downloads movies on iTunes and it uses about 1.5 to 3 megabits. I’ve tried configuring quality of service (QoS) on various routers including Netgear and Linksys/Cisco and the problem is that I need a zero latency connection for my SSH sessions to my servers. So while QoS might be great if everyone’s using non-realtime services like iTunes downloads and web browsing, when you are using SSH or a VoIP product like Skype, it really sucks when someone is hogging the bandwidth.
Login to your Router
we need to set our MAC to get MAC address
- open cmd (open run then type ‘cmd’ hit enter )
- then nter ‘getmac’ (without quotes hit enter)
from below image 74D435ED61XX this is my mac
Add IP address( Ex: 192.168.0.5) , MAC address(which got from cmd) (Ex. 74D435ED61XX)
go to advance then ass QoS rule
Add IP (Ex:192.168.0.5) which you set before using MAC address.
Done now that IP limited to 512 kb/s 😀
