My little home network has 2, sometimes 3, users. Nothing has 802.11N capability. High priority users (me) use wired connection to the router mostly, but not always.
The problem: One wireless client hogs the network bandwidth with streaming video and other stuff sometimes.
Proposed solution: Buy a new ASUS WL-520GU ($44 from Amazon). . Flash Toastman Tomato-ND-1.28.8754-Std. Set up QOS to throttle the problem user way back when I want the streaming video bandwidth. Somehow toggle the QOS settings to open the problem user's bandwidth when I don't need it.
The questions: Does this seem like a reasonable solution to my problem? Can someone suggest better, easier, or cheaper solutions?
If I go ahead with this idea, I'll probably be back to ask for help with the toggling.
