    Hi there. I'm a gamer, and as you know I need consistent and reliable internet. I play League of Legends currently.
    The problem I'm having is that whenever someone else in the house browses the internet, downloads something, or especially when they watch Youtube or any other kind of videos, I get EXTREME unplayable lag. My ping can shoot up to and higher than 1000 ms!
    I have my modem right beside me, and I am the only one connected to it VIA an Ethernet cable.

    I was wondering if there's any way for me to limit the amount of bandwidth (if that's the correct term) that other devices in the house can receive, as to prevent other devices from stealing all of my internet strength. It almost seems like my desktop is the lowest priority for receiving signal strength, yet I am the only one connected to the modem VIA an Ethernet cable, everyone else is wireless.

    I have access to the website that I can configure settings about my internet, devices and modem etc.

    It looks like this (I scratched out the IPs and serial number of my modem): http://i.imgur.com/MKHVF.jpg

    Is there any way I can limit other devices strengths?

    Is there something I can do with regards to QoS? I don't really know what it is or even if I have the option to use it.
    Also, I live in Ontario, Canada and my ISP is Bell.
