              I'm sharing the internet with someone else through a router. Everything is fine except once in a while, I'd like to play games such as Quake 4 in Linux or Call of Duty 4. My ping is so horrible, it irritates me and others to play on servers. I have full access to the router, what I'd like to do is give gaming priority over all the torrent downloads going on by the other computer to cause lag and high ping with gaming servers. Is there any other solution besides unplugging his internet temporarily from the other computer? I've already tried that and usually get sleepy and forget to plug it back in. Thanks for your time.
