The scenario is I live in a flat with other persons and we share the same wifi.The other people using the internet on their laptops take away all the speed all of the time as they are always downloading one or the other silly videos and all that useless stuff.I'm now sick of this.Is there any way I can make changes on their laptops using some command or in Group Policy Editor.I've already done that QOS bandwidth reservation but of no use.Please help me out!

You may be able to set prioritizations in your router so please provide your laptop specs and the router specs as well. Just trying to get you set up for a quick response when one of our wifi gurus arrives to assist you.

What you are talking about is network throttling and you do that on the router itself, not Windows. Check the settings on the router.

You don't mention which router you use , you may be able to use QOS to limit traffic based on the port ranges or specific IP addresses to limit certain machines to a % of the bandwidth if the bandwidth transfer speed limits you set up are reached.

Best bet is to go to the your routers models forums and ask there.
