Solved Wifi Router Bandwidth management/hack

Specs: Windows 64
Let's say a home router is divided between 10 people, and I am trying to download a torrent, is there a way to make the router prioritize my computer instead of others. There are no options to do this on my wifi router gateway. Also I tried using connectify and bridging 2 network connections in the hopes ill receive more bandwidth while many people are using this. Please dont suggest to use cable or things :P. Im asking for a sort of hack which can trick the router to prioritize me. I want to use this at other places were network connection is slow and lots of people are on the wifi. Thank you :)

thanks i already know about this. Unfortunately this requires to enter the router gateway, like I had already explained before my router gateway does not have these options nor has the possibility for an upgrade to this firmware. Im looking for something more complex I wouldn't have asked for help if it was that simple. Something client-sided based.

✔ Best Answer
The router feature that prioritizes network traffic is QOS (Quality Of Service). This is not a simple thing and must be designed into the router by skilled software developers. No hack can do this.

Obviously such a powerful feature needs to be centrally controlled through the routers administration interface. Naturally access to this interface must be controlled to ensure that only authorized individuals have access. Typically a number of options are available to accomplish this. In many cases administration can only be done with a wired connection to the router. These are all basic security precautions.

If a router does not provide options to control QOS that is a clear indication that it does not have this feature. If the feature does not exist that is end of story. To use the feature you must purchase a router that has it.

I hope this clarifies the situation.
