Is there a way so that two computers won't interrupt each other when both are using the internet and the same router?
I have a family of 5 (yeah big family) and we all use the internet so it's almost impossible to share (like each person having personal time) and when two or more people use the internet at the same time, it's MEGA slow (especially when someone is watching movies).

Is there a way so that two computer's internet don't slow each other down?

Theoretically all data will get split evenly between multiple connections and this is handled by the router.
A lot is dependent on how fast your connection actually is. If it's only 512k, it'll be slow anyway.

Well it's supposed to be cable (100 mb/s) but whenever someone is watching something or downloading, it gets MEGA slow and I was wondering if there was a way to limit bandwidth on a specific computer.

100 megabytes per second?
100 Mb/s will be the connection speed between your computer and your router, that will always be 100mb/s.
I was referring to the speed between your router and your internet provider, which I doubt will be 100Mb/s. If it was you wouldn't have any slowdown at all!
