Ping Issues with router

Specs: Windows Vista, E8400

I am having large issues with my network in my apartment. There are 5 of us living here, and we have a wireless d-link DIR-655 router. I am the only one wired in, and we have 4 laptops wirelessly connected, usually all at the same time. My issue is that the ping will g up to 400-500 ms to places where I usually can ping 30. This not only affects gaming but also affects streaming performance. We have 10 mbps download and usuall get about 1 mbps upload. My roomates all use torrents, and I have come to the conclusion that this is what is causing the issues. I have tried to enter portforwarding into the router settings but have yet to see anything resolved. I KNOW there has to be a way that we can all share the internet equally, so that i can game and surf while they are downloading torrents.

Any suggestions would be great

Port forwarding has nothing to do with bandwidth control. You need a router that knows about torrents and limits the bandwidth.

If your router can't limit/assign program-user bandwidth you need a new router that does.

Or you have to setup a bandwidth proxy server that everything goes thru before it hits the router.
