I just came here from stackoverflow, hope it's the right place to ask this question.
We share internet in our apartment via a Linksys router (2 people are connected with wireless and 2 people with Ethernet cable). The channel is 15 Mbit, which should be enough, but when someone starts to download something on max speed, no one else can even open a web page. Is there a way to tell the router to share traffic among peers? Or it does not distinguish between connected computers and just redirects packets?
Another solution would be using a download manager with speed control but my roommates are lazy :)
