Bandwidth Throttling DIR-6289
« on: November 06, 2012, 08:03:31 AM »

Ok here is my problem, I have two great boys, but they love gaming more than they love school, so if I unhook the internet at night the one goes banana's, I would say something but my wife says I handle it wrong, so instead of just cutting them off the net, I want to just throttling down the speeds so they can't game all night long and yes all night. Then they say they are too tired to go to school but if they have almost zero speed they can't game on their Xbox and PS3 machines, the router is in our bedroom and they have no access to it.
How exactly can I throttle it down, in detail please as I have no idea other then how to get onto the router using the number and I can revoke their IP's or just turn it off.

Someone told me Q0S will work just look on the net for your answers, well here I am and I am hoping I will get the answers I need.

Thanks Guys and Girls.

Lets review this and see if it helps:
Gaming and QoS for XBL

If your wanting to slow things down, I would not use the priority of 1, rather use 128 to start. I would input the gaming devices into 1 rule and use that priority, then create another rule for the other devices that you want to have and share the bandwidth, set that maybe for a higher priority, say 50 maybe.

This is for xbox and there is examples for setting up PCs or devices as well.

Let us know if you have any questions. Here to help.
