One of the more frustrating aspects of life on the Internet is the inevitable, and hopefully brief, periods of slowness. When nothing works right, movies stop playing, games stop working, and Windows seems to get stuck thinking about something.
The worst part about this is not knowing why, and there is always a reason why. Here I will show you that with the Kibosh Router you can always know, precisely, who is using the bandwith.
You’re watching a youtube video, and it suddenly stops playing giving you the spinning ‘I can’t play this video’ icon. The kids are playing Roblox and suddenly the games stop moving. You’re talking to friends on the phone and the conversation get’s choppy. What’s the problem? All of these issues are caused by bandwidth latency: something is slowing your Internt down. I’m going to show you how to find out what is causing that slowness.
Log into your Kibosh Router at http://192.168.10.1 and go to Status > B/W Distribution.
Not normal – notice aa-l160808 is now using over 90% of available bandwidth!
Now you know who is using all the bandwidth and thus affecting everyone else. Figure out what that device is doing and you’ll solve the problem. It’s usually due to someone downloading something.
