Recommended Posts

hay i was wondering if i could run my internet connection directly to my computer then run my router off the gigabyte connection?

(so i dont get lag from other computer browsing ect)

Yeah just set up internet connection sharing on your box. I don't have any experience with ICS but I have a feeling that if the other computers are requesting bandwidth it will still give it to them, and this won't solve your problem.

 

If you had specialized internet sharing software you could probably pull it off though. Kind of like how the other bittorrent clients allow you to limit upload/download speed.

the only way to eliminate this, regardless of how you set it up, is to not let other computers browse/download while yours is doing it.

 

(take it from me, i do networking on top of all this DFI stuff)

 

your comp isnt going to 'get more' bandwidth by being the first in line

 

remember your Gigabit LAN might be 1000Mbps but your cable, at best, is probably only 3-5Mbps.

 

there is no connection on this earth that I know of (for us normal home users) that uses 100% of even a 100Mbps line.

i may be wrong but isnt there some way via the QOS bandwidth selector to limit the amount of data an application uses? never looked into it as i have no need

no the QoS reserves a set amount of bandwidth...but if the controller is needing 100% of the available bandwidth then it will bypass (open up).

 

QoS isn't really effective and has no real benefits or negatives.

I live in a 'student' house with 2 other people.

We share the internet connection too. My server is connected to the internet and functions as router. I've been looking for some sort of way to set limits on the upload and download speed to the other uses and as far as i know the only way is to use Linux.

I'm sure it should be possible with windows too, but i haven't been able to find software that can do the job.
