How can I limit Bitlord...?
 
Hey guys!

My brother keep downloading with Bitlord (:angry2:) , which slow down my connexion quite a bit, games become unplayable with 1500ms latency, and I'd like to kinda limit Bitlord speed or my brother's comp connexion speed if needed, is there a way to do this?

I use a Linksys WRT310N as my router.

Thanks!

Look for QOS on you router, you should be able to set bandwidth limits there.

Thanks!

I actually didnt block bitlord or anything, just set a higher priority for my games, works like a charm so far :D

You could also change the settings in BitLord and cap the speeds within it. Though I'm guessing he could change these back.

Yes best to cut him off at the pass :haha:. Make sure you're the only one that has the password to the router too.

Seems like I'm still getting high 900's :(

I'm the only one with the router password and he wouldnt be able to change the settings back if I'd change them...

:ninja:

I'll see to it on monday when he's not there ;D

As long as you set all your games to high priority, you shouldn't have any problems. Make sure you reboot your router as well.

Doesnt seem to actually work :(

Well, some modems and routers actually get bogged down by torrents, regardless of QOS settings. You may want to look into that.
