Hey all, so I’ll skip to the chase here.
Here’s my setup
Me ))))))) [Wireless Modem]] —> Roommate upstairs
)))) = Wifi
—> = Wired
What I’m looking to do, because we split the connection cost and he torrents all day every day (leaving my latency on a roller coaster between 100ms and 5000ms) is limit his bandwidth. I’ve tried talking to him, and he doesn’t care. I can’t get my own line and based on the building agreement, I can’t get wired.
So, in a nutshell I’m hoping a setup like this can work, and I need some input on the how.
Me ))))))) [Wireless Modem]] —> [Router]] —> Roommate upstairs
Where the router can throttle his bandwidth to a max of say… 500kb/s. (arbitrary number). I don’t think QoS will do it because the router itself will only have one connection, right? Also, I can’t replace the wireless modem as shaw is a tard.
Any help at all would be appreciated, I’m fully capable of flashing linux onto a router I’m just not sure which model to get if required :X
