Bandwidth Management?

I have the 2Wire RG, Model 3801HGV. I'm trying to find out if there is a way to manage how much bandwidth a certain family member uses. I have the 12mbps/1.5mbps service and this other family member is always watching Netflix. My speed, obviously suffers and grinds to a crawl. I get highly aggravated by this so I need to know if there's a way I can limit that persons bandwidth to say 4mbps, while I keep the 8mbps. I pay the bill so I'm entitled to most of the bandwidth but I'm not greedy or selfish. I anxiously await any help I can get.

I'm not sure you can restrict the BW by 8M vs. 4M, but there is something call QOS that will allow you to give different priorities to different devices/messages. I'm not that familiar with the 2Wire RG, Model 3801HGV, but a quick look as the datasheet »search.yahoo.com/r/_ylt=A0oGdVs4···3801.pdf did not show any QOS mention.

I'm not sure if you can put your modem into bridge mode, but if you can, then you can purchase a router that does QOS that is better suited for what you are trying to do. There are many out there, but for example the D-Link DIR-657, DIR-827, DIR-857. Netgear and Cisco make some nice ones too.

The 3801HGV is a VDSL modem that cannot be bridged. If you want to run a router behind the 3801, connect it to one of the LAN ports and then put that device in DMZ+ mode in the modem firewall.

QoS is NOT configurable on the 3801. AT&T has specific settings which they have set for use within their network.
