Do you want to improve your ping when playing your favorite FPS Steam game?
Do you suffer from low speed because of too many family members connected to the same network?
Do you want to limit their internet speed so you can download or play at your ease?
Someone created a program called SelfishNet that does all you are looking for, you can even block them from using internet but this is not what I want you to do.
Use this software at your own risk, if you get a divorce don’t blame me!
SelfishNet is currently available in Web Archive and you can download it for free, it will allow you to get full control over your network, ethernet included.
You can control the bandwidth of everyone connected to your network through a technique called network spoofing. Basically the program will send “fake packets” to your network to control each network card in it and how much it should upload and download.
Using this free software you will be able to set how much speed can anyone in the network get (upload/download).
I will also show you how to prevent someone from limiting your internet, if you are the victim.
