So I mostly play games and my sister mostly watches videos on youtube and read manga and stuff... But whenever she is using the internet at the same time I am playing online games especially League I'm getting high pings. When she's just browsing it spikes to 100ms and when she's watching videos it goes up to 500-600ms... I just want to know how can I limit her bandwidth use (if that's the term) so that whenever she uses the internet I won't lag. Something that limits her use to 1mbps only?

I'm tired of a freaking piece of crap pc o.O

She's probably thinking the same about you. Who pays for the Internet connection?

Sounds familiar...?

Possibly discuss with whomever pays the dsl/broadband (isp) bill to upgrade you to fibre...; or at least increase the bandwidth on your service regardless of style of connection

Presumably you're in USA where I know the isps charge more for increased bandwidth - be it via copper or fibre (usually cable) all the way.

Otherwise negotiate times for each to use and enjoy; and honour the agreement fully...

You can set up Quality of Service (QoS) rules in your router that will prioritize certain types of traffic over others.

Most modern routers (last 4 years or so) have a rudimentary QoS section that has predefined rules that can put gaming traffic at a higher priority than say YouTube or video traffic.

You can also modify these rules to run on a schedule so when you want to watch videos they will load normally.

Back in the dial up era... I would get into fights with my sister over who was going to connect to AOL first... How times would change.
