    Hey guys, new here but i've been trying to read up on guides and what not, but everything I try doesn't seem to work just right.

    I'm on a 3mb cable connection thats shared by 3 sometimes 4 people in the house.

    I've tried a lot of setups on my router setup with tomato. I mainly want to play my games league of legends and guildwars 2 without lag. I notice if someone is using netflix my ping can spike from 19 all the way up to 500 and pulse up and down within that range.

    It's really annoying and I'm on a budget so I don't know if I can afford a higher broadband.

    Am i going for too much by wanting lag free gaming with netflix running on this connection?

    Thanks guys, and sorry if this is in the wrong section!

    Don't know what Tomato version, use Toastman or Shiby and enable QOS, and check where is the band wide leak, google for a line quality test, check with your internet provider. I think it is not Tomato. I have same 3mb and use Shiby's and runs great gaming. Someone using Netfix sreaming video will take a lot of band wide and slow down everything.
