    Computer and/or Router Settings Question.

    My sons Youtube uploads Kill the internet for the rest of the house. how to fix?

    I have Four computers and a few handheld devices that connect to Comcast through a Netgear N600 (WNDR3700v3) router and then through a SB6120 surfboard cable modem. Specifically, My kids computers are hardwired into the router. Wife's and my laptops are wireless, as well as the handheld devices.

    When the boy starts any kind of Youtube upload, he pretty much kills the entire internet for the rest of the house. What setting do I need to look into? Assuming there will be something on his Windows 7 desktop or in the router that can throttle his upload enough to allow the rest of us to connect. Just don't have any clue about these things.

    Any help is appreciated and I will google it in the meantime.


    Thank you,

    Boy that info was old. As am I. Currently my kids have taken over my desktops. They are both sporting matching GTX1080's. Last Christmas I got everyone Oculuses and thus GTX1080's. My eldest is some sort of CSGO champion gold label something or other. Me I work and shoot real guns. Build Comps as needed.

    I ve a fritzbox and never owned a netgear. Try out untangle or pfsense router. With these you can set the max internet up and download speed for your son's computer . Am using untangle as firewall and router. My main pc has 75% of my internet speed.
