comment Chromium wasting almost all my bandwidth
@Bob Apparently, it seems it keeps opening new websockets constantly, and never closes them. The more time the tab is left open, the more it sucks from the network.

Thank you for your answer! Please, have a look at my comment to the user NetworkKingPin above (can't include two mentions in a comment)!

comment Chromium wasting almost all my bandwidth
@NetworkKingPin bitcointoyou.com is in fact one tab that I leave open all the time in Chromium. It is a simple website, though, with mostly text, and I can't see the reason why it would need 10 Mbps constantly... No videos and almost no images. Could they be using my computer to increase their page views, I don't know, maybe it is a design problem?

comment How can I produce high CPU load on a Linux server?
@ott Specifying -j without a number is a bad idea idea to stress the CPU, it will stress your RAM instead.

@barlop Thanks, I think I understand it now! You have confirmed what I suspected. I think it is possible to put this modem in bridge mode, doesn't seem so difficult from what I've read.

comment Should I purchase a switch, a hub, or a router?
@slow_excellence So basically just for sharing the connection in an inexpensive way, I need a switch. If I want more features, I need to buy a router or install a new firmware on the modem/router, right?

Thanks, @barlop! I don't know whether I can mess up with the firmware, because the modem is not mine (it belongs to the ISP). Unless I can return to the original one later. But Tomato sounds delicious :P

Thanks for your answer! Yes, the Motorola has only one socket. The DNS thing I don't think it would... but would a switch provide some kind of bandwidth control?
