Hi guys I have my own steam account and so does my kids have their own. We both own our own PC's in different rooms where I play on my steam account and they play on on theirs.

What is annoying me is that both computers use an ethernet cable and when I download a game in steam I'm uploading at 4MB but if the kids decide to download a game on their PC at the same time they take 90% of the download speed away from me and I'm sitting with KB and they get most of the MB Upload speed.

What I am asking is why is their PC grabbing most of the download speed and not shared AT 50/50 when we both download?

Are you using a switch or a router as QoS is different between them. See http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Networking_Hardware/Routers/Q_27179176.html

SO go tell YOUR children that YOU pay the bill and if they hog the bandwith YOU will not be happy with THEM!
