I have just moved into a new house with some friends at my University! Exciting times, but what we didn't realise is that we are all heavy internet users, currently causing problems in the house.
The problem appears to be that if someone starts say streaming a video or downloading software, or running steam updates it appears the whole network grinds to a halt and they get priority on the network. (Almost as if QOS has gone crazy). This means that everyone else in the house's internet is unusable and in most cases the culprit doesn't even realise they are doing it.
I am confident it is not a bandwidth problem as the 'culprit' can get download speeds up to and beyond 5Mbps.
We have a TG585v7 (O2 Wireless II Box) in the house and I have trawled through the settings to find anything on network priority etc but there is none.
Does anyone know what is causing this problem and what steps we could take to fix it?
