Replacement Router with QoS / Traffic Control

Hello, I'm in a house of 4 others, and two of them are heavy, heavy torrenters. Seeing as I am the only one here with knowledge of computers or the internet, it is only I who knows how harmful torrenting is, it destroys your connection when torrents are on, and BT starts to get suspicious. I was wondering if anyone knew any good routers that had QoS so I can say "Give XX% bandwidth to these guys, and then leave blah blah for the rest.

Ideally the router would be a straight replacement for the BT home hub.


Thank you

If you disable UPnP on the home hub, and make sure that there are no incoming ports forwarded to their computers, that will slow them down a lot Smiley Wink

During peak time, P2P traffic is restricted by BT, so you should not have any problems then.
