Normally there are around 8 people online at one time though.
However i believe that there are atleast 2 people who have recently been downloading constantly through what i believe to be some kind of peer to peer networking service... i believe it is probably something like limewire or bit torrent.
I have tried blocking ports to stop them as the internet becomes almost unuseable some times when they leave there pc's on all day and night, however have had little success...
below are a list of ports that i have blocked:
Does anyone have any ideas of what i can do to help speed up the internet connection for everyone else who uses the internet other than just blocking the 2 culprits... as we have all paid for the internet connection and i think even though they are basically stealing all the bandwidth... blocking them is not fair...
It has become so bad recently that 2 of us have looked into buying and installing a new line into the house, which seems like a rather costly solution to the problem...
thanks in advance
