my roomate runs 10 billion torrents at one time, :eek:, yes i know,Which hardware version of the WRT54G? If it's v1 thru v4, then you
crazy isn't it... i was wondering if there was any way to limit his
bandwidth. i tried some stuff but they don't work, so i need some
suggestions, lots of them :D
the most important thing i want is that he doesn't lag the online games
i play: :D
the router i have is a Linksys
WRT54G Wireless-G Broadband Router
can install DD-WRT or OpenWRT firmware which include QoS (quality of
service) bandwidth management features.
Note that it can be simultaneously used to throttle your roommates
traffic and be optimized for gaming.
However, if your hardware revision is v5-v8, forget it. There's not
enough RAM inside to do anything beyond the basic router functions.
The micro version of DDWRT includes QoS and runs on Linksys V5 and higher.
I am running DD-WRT v23 SP3 (07/21/07) micro, (SVN revision 7509) in
a WRT54GS v5. It does have QoS, I do have it turned on though I don't
have a roommate to stress test it. I don't have WiFi turned on, so I
don't know how well that works. Average, I suppose.
Before I scrounged up a spare GS, I had a plain v5 which locked up and
had to be power cycled fairly often, usually during bittorrents. Sorry,
I don't remember the exact version of DD-WRT. Something 6 to 12 months
