[ubuntu-uk] netbook wifi traffic disconnects all

I'll try some of the things you mentioned here thanks for the input!

My wife downloads stuff on her w7 laptop with just slowing down traffic on
other wifi. and I have an ubuntu desktop with wifi as well but that doesn't
do the same as the netbook.

I was able to use torrent without conflicting other kits by reduccing the
upload (and download speed).

I'd really like to know if you could cap the wifi speed for everything

Thanks again!

Curious.  Yes, there are times, particularly weekend afternoons and last
day of school hols. when I see a traffic problem.  In my case, it has
never stopped any of the computers on my network, just slowed down to
snail like pace.  I put it down to kids getting music tracks and videos.
