    Buy a Packeteer Filter box. set you back about 1,500 GBP. or you can make one using an old PC some gaffatape and some install of Linux that supports net filtering.

    So summary in the short ter not a lot.. hopefully over the comming years we should see more inteligent routers that cater for this, there is however a heavy demand for these cheaper reliable bandwidth filters, not only due to gaming but also the new renewed emphasis on services such as On-Demand TV and Voip phone networks.

    Look into one of these routers D-Link DIR-655 Xtreme N or D-Link DGL-4500 Xtreme Game Lounge these routers are smart enough to pirority you when gaming. Let you customize and control your network connections. They are fast too.

    DIR-655 is cheaper ($150) but it's still good. DGL-4500 is more $$$, around $200 but it's designed for gamers in mind. This is D-Link top of the line.

    I personally just upgraded from D-Link WBR-1310 to the DGL-4500 Game Lounge one. Yep, must happier now, faster, stabler and stronger signal for the wireless than the WBR-1310. I'm still learning all the cool features of the router.

    As I said earlier, you don't have to get the Game Lounge one but this one have more additional features than the DIR-655 Xtreme N such as dual bands, 2.5ghz and 5ghz, Game Fuel, LCD display...etc. By the way, the Game Lounge programable specific IP addresses to conect to your network as certain time.

    @Say What, this is mean you can program your brother computer to cut off the network during you're gaming . This is mean though.

    Nah... read and watch the reviews and make your decision.

    Wanna some reviews?...I just made your life easier, didn't I?
    Reviews: C|Net: DGL-4500 Game Lounge you can find user's reviews here as well, or watch video reviews JESUIT-Gadget: DGL-4500 or TigerDirect TV

    I haven't really checked this out yet, but it seems cool. They charge for this, but I'm sure that you can find a crack somewhere

    I laughed so hard at pulling out the cord
