Hello, I'm just wondering if it is possible to throttle WiFi user speed? I don't have a good Internet speed because here in my country Data cost a ton. So, my family can only avail the lowest plan available and when there are a lot of visitors at our house they tend to watch YT all the time Download games etc etc... Thus making it hard to use the internet properly.

I have a Prolink H5004n router I think my ISP(PLDT) tweak some settings of it. I have learn that QoS is a thing tho I do not know how to use it.

QoS is probably the best way to go. I would set your devices at a higher priority and set new devices to automatically be assigned the default. You may need static or preferred IP addresses to allow your permanent devices to remain in a higher priority.
