      Not with the Sky routers, as they don't have a Quality of Service setting. There is not really any viable software programs you can install on one PC to restrict what another does. This can be done on some high end business and enterprise routers, but they are far too expensive to consider for home use.

      This is a perennial problem with student accommodation and yob siblings who have no regard for other users.

      Thats a shame as it can get really annoying when your playing a online game with a consistant ping of 100+ because my two brothers seem to do nothing but watch youtube. So apart from paying alot of money for a router theres nothing i can do.
