I have 3 computers in my house and at times they can be particularly slow when all in use when in the internet. Is there any way in which I can make my computer faster at the internet and restrict the other users so mine has priorty which will give me sort of like a override on their connection

You need some form of traffic shaping/QoS (Quality of Service) mechanism.

The problem you have at the moment is that all machines are equal.

I suspect what you'd need to do is introduce a machine that sits between your others and the internet router and decides which traffic can get through.

Looking around there's some free software here that looks like it would do it:

It will take a separate machine, a bit of networking to get it configured though.

Can you get your broadband speed upped?
