Hello everyone,

I'm new to this forum and have been browsing your archives for older posts that may help me, but have found none.

In a nutshell, I'm looking to prioritize my laptop's bandwidth usage on my router. I've read all kinds of things about logging into the router and changing the QoS settings, but here's the kicker: I have no QoS option. I'm using a (s)Hitron Technologies router, though I don't know what kind of model it is.

I share my Internet connection with up to 8 other people in my residence and have a cheap landlord who won't up our Internet package. Being all students, I'm positive that more than one person has torrents going all day.

At this point I'm wondering if I should be trying to use port forwarding to prioritize my laptop, or if I should try to buff the priorities of the applications I wish to use? Is it possible to slow down torrents without completely denying them?

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!

As far as I know you will need QoS on the router to assign bandwidth . - other members may have an alternative solution
