Easy to use router software to control bandwith per computer

by CactusJack5150 / June 2, 2005 9:55 AM PDT

I have 3 computers and my PS2 hooked up to a 4 port internet /network router. I want to have one cpu and my PS2 to use a high amount of bandwith because I use them for games and downloading. The other two I could have at a lower bandwith because they are used only for internet browsing. When I use my PS2 or my good cpu, I have to directly connect to my cable modem to get the best connection to play. If I leave it as is shared, I get crappy ping and enormous lag and get booted from games and such. I am fairly computer literate but I cannot get it figured out. I have a LinkSys network/router (don't know the model # as I am at work when writing this). Any suggestions? Thanks!!!
