    Could someone tell me if it is possible to throttle my wireless internet on a N600 router?

    My wife is often uploading pictures or design work and it is really causing major lagging in my gaming... lol :cool:

    I want to throttle the wireless if possible.

    Use QoS to throttle uploads from her IP address.

    Depending on your router you may be able to set a reservation for DHCP.
