Limiting bandwidth to be used in wifi network
I am using a TP-Link WR720N wifi router with my 1mbps Link3 connection. My dedicated speed & local speed both are 1mbps meaning that i do not get any extra bandwidth from BDIX connections that I am supposed to get from internet. So sometimes, when I play games in COD4 servers & someone in my house is using the wifi via mobile or stuff, I suddenly notice lags where pings go as high as 500-600 & i can't have that while I am gaming. So is there any way to limit the bandwidth of wifi connection so that I can have a spared bw for my gaming while not interrupting others using the wifi?
If your router supports QoS, use that. If not, well, buy a better router.

In the DHCP section you would see the IP range of Dynamically Assigned IP address range.
e.g: 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.1.100
Now in the MAC & IP Binding section there should be an option to bind your MAC address to a fixed IP.
Bind it to 192.168.0.1 for your MAC.
Now in QoS, Limit Bandwidth to 80kbps for IP range for 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.100.
Restart the Router.
N.B -You can change the Guaranteed Bandwidth if someone from your home complains.
