Prioritizing user bandwidth


Prioritizing user bandwidth

I have the Tri-Band Wifi System Orbi, and I am having really bad issues sharing bandwidth inside our home. We have 8 people living in our house and a BIL who is a hardcore PC gamer and it just KILLS the Wifi speed. Is there any way to prioritize my BIL's bandwidth on the Orbi to a lower priority so the rest of us (myself who is a full-time college student) can actually use the internet as well. Thanks!

Re: Prioritizing user bandwidth

Currently there's almost no way to really do prioritization with the Orbi, Perhaps you can make him connect to the Guest Network, while the rest of you connect to the regular network? that way you would be using a seperate network he cannot impact, another thing you can do if he is close to the router or if you can place long ethernet cables in your home, but this implies more money would be buying a managed switch like This one Here and then control prioritization there, I have that switch, it's really nice and it has that as a feature.
