not sure if it goes here but... im in a house share of 5 and we have virgin broadband 20mbps, when i download and one of my house mates isnt i get a good speed of 150-200kbps but as soon as he starts to download i get around 50kbps. despite if everyone is downloading he always seems to get 100+ kbps download speed. we are both forwarded to the router and his system isnt much better than mine. just wondering why this is? is there anyway he has allocated his pc to get more bandwidth or limited ours? any help would be well appreciated, thanks. ps is there any prgram that will monitor the network usage for each individual pc?
