    I don't believe that you will find a way to do that. The router will divide the bandwidth among the users.

    Unless your router supports some sort of QOS rules then you will get what the router dishes out.

    Check the router for availability of QOS settings. That router is running Linux with iptables, and iptables certainly supports QOS so it all depends on whether the router makes the option available as a menu item.

    I've used a bandwidth shaping tool before called "cFos Speed" (I think). It actually worked pretty well and dramatically speeded up some things at the expense of less important traffic. But it was complex and could only be used on a PC, anyway, or through Internet Connection Sharing.

    Do the other users of this connection know what you are trying to do?

    If you are the only one online, the problem disappears. Or maybe you need an upgraded connection.

    Well that seems pretty selfish.

    I think this is a matter for you to take up with your parents, and not something for us to be involved with.
