    I live in a shared house, we have one internet connection (with a wireless router) which we share the bill for. Is it possible for one computer to dominate the bandwith (if that is the correct term, you know what I mean!) and cause the other to have an extremely slow internet connection? If so, can anything be done to solve this?

    Hello Etaf, I have no idea the make and model of the router, it's second hand, and there are no Manufacturer marks on the outside. Would the FCC number work?
