Had Virgin engineer come around today as my 20mb connection was irregular. He advised me that I should upgrade my wireless router to a 'N' one from 'g' as connection used by 1 wired and 3 wireless computers.
I enjoy gaming and streaming online videos. Flat mates are heavy downloaders.
I want to restrict my housemate to 3-4mb each of bandwidth speed off the 20mb internet connections and stop them from downloading during the day times (to avoid service being reduced from Virgin), but allow them normal browsing. Advised by Virgin Engineer to buy a 'N' router which have options to restrict bandwidth.
Router will be connected directly to the modem and NOT though any network computer. Installing software in every computer to restrict is not an option

The person who can solve my problem (cheapest and simplist) will get a prize worth over £10.
So all my fellow HUKD members, I leave this now in your capable hands.
