1 download consumes all my bandwidth

Hi

 

So I have an issue where if I download on my PC a file it consumes all my bandwith. I connect also sometimes VPN for work and my connection would drop. I cant surf other websites since no bandwith. If I am connect using my iPad that would lose connection.

 

I tried to change QoS but I dont see to take any effect.

 

Under Upload QoS, I Enable Upstream QoS (Max bandwidth 1.65 Mbps)

I set my PC to Normal Priority and iPad to High.

 

Under DownStream QoS, I Enabled DownStream QoS. I also added in the QoS my iPad as a High Priority.

 

How can I prevent a download of 1 file from taking all the bandwidth.

 

Thanks

What is your DL & UL service

 

I'm guessing you're suffering from lack of bandwidth syndrome and someone suggested QOS as a solution?

Actually I figured I need to try to implement QoS since out of the box I have this issue. Which is surprising since I assumed out of the box it should allow me to download and surf and use other devices but it doesnt.

So I download from my PC. VPN from the same PC. connect via my mini iPad. Once I download 1 file from a website ie. say 500M or more; my download speed will hit approx 1.2-1.3M and I lose connections everywhere.

Answer the question............ what is your ISP bandwidth for Download & Upload......... it's not rocket science.... but you need to have something to work with and prioritize.

DL/UL is 10M/1.5M

You're expecting a lot from a minimal connection. Also setting a limit to 1.6 when you only have 1.5 isn't going to pull that extra .1 out of thin air.

Why would I upgrade my support if the product doesnt work properly out of the box. If you are in support you have a serious attitude issue.

Ahh always good to know there are people like you out there who know nothing of actually helping people but rather of trying to feel superior in their responses by trying to demean people. Get some self respect and change your attitude if you want to get anywhere in life. Get out in the real world and not stay locked up in your little world.
