Hi,

 

I currently have vodafone as an ISP and currently use the stock router that they supply.

 

My flatmates all use wireless standards to do their stuff, but i have powerline adapters hooked directly

up to the unit. However I get the worst connection out of them all, because my flatmates can be on Netflix and

Youtube with no connection issues all night and i cant play a single game of CS:go without my ping sitting below 200.

 

Would a better router help combat this or would i need to change plans. I'm currently on ADSL and wouldn't be able to get fibre easily as i live in a townhouse situation and would need consent.

 

Also is there anything i can do on my internet settings to help 'prioritize' my computer over their appliances?

 

Cheers for any help provided.

QOS in the router needs to be set, you need a higher priority for your LAN IP (or your MAC address) so it favors you, I have 2 others feeding off my connection and have no problems playing BF4.

VDSL is a good option if you can't get fibre. I believe Vodafone now offer it as a free upgrade.

For some strange reason they will not let me get vdsl, only adsl or fibre. So ill have to look at a different option then.

But surely having two local networks doesn't affect their internet connection?

No not at all, but ones a good network ( faster ) and the other one is a bit slower, they should be the same speed but one network is using a older wireless band which seem to be most of the connections around here are, so it doesn't get "clobbered" with a different wireless band...

Adsl speeds are fine for what we do at home, but when my 3 other flatmates jump on Netflix, YouTube, Spotify etc, the network bottlenecks heavily. I try to do anything downstairs and it takes for ever to load.

What I was thinking, is if I bought a separate decent router for downstairs, and made this router the "master" plugged only my devices into this and the had my existing router become a "slave" on the network to combat all their wifi needs, would this theoretically put my devices first and then distribute whatever network is left for all their WiFi devices to sit on?

Or do you guys suggest to try QOS on the new router I'll be purchasing to see if that helps?

You'd have to set up QoS, otherwise it'd get treated the same (well, except for the fact that it has only a single Ethernet connection worth of bandwidth, but seeing as that is way faster than your internet it isn't worth considering).

The Huawei HG659 modem that Vodafone provides is locked by default (Not Admin).
