Dividing broadband speed

  kadz886 23:15 22 Feb 2006

There are 3 laptops in our flat and we are sharing the 10M broadband using a wired router. Is it possible to divide the broadband speed equally for each laptops?

is the short answer.

The long answer is that it can be done, but it's something that requires an expensive router and is generally reserved for a corporate network situation.

Otherwise, your router will hand out bandwidth to any computer, on an ad-hoc basis and if one person is a bandwidth hog you'll have to speak to him/her, or pull out that particular LAN cable.....but that's a last resort method, and destined to test the flat-sharers' relationships somewhat.
