Sharing broadband - bandwidth

  Baz48 16:53 31 Jul 04

I share a 512kb broadband connection via a LAN and modem router with my son. Whilst I am just browsing pages, such as PC Advisor, my son's ping rate drops from 40 to 300 every time I load a page and his online game stops momentarily.

Whilst I would expect this to happen when streaming video etc. I was "advised" that he shouldn't see any drop whilst I was just browsing.

Is this to be expected or is my set-up wrong?
