Which routers have the option to limit the speed...

of my connection for a certain device?

For example: I'm playing online on my game console, but there are two or three other devices on my network streaming videos, voice/video chatting, and whatnot. Essentially, lagging my game.

I would like to limit the speed at which they can stream videos to like, let's say, 10%; so I can have most of the speed for my game, which is much, much more important ( =D ). Which routers can give one the option to do just that? I've searched around of some myself, but it still isn't very clear to me.

Wouldn't it be better solution ...

for the combined all of you to pay for a faster connection? Or even have 2 connections, one cable and one ADSL.

Good idea

Come to think of it, that's a pretty good idea too. I'll definitely consider it; but I still find buying a new router an easier idea.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
