    well well,
    recently I bought a new WRT54G, since my last one broke..

    well ok.. I am sharing my wlan with my family but mainly my brother.
    he got that weird fetish of downloading entire serieses of animes...
    and he is stealing all of my internets.
    everytime he is downloading something, my download speed drops soo fucking low, that I can barely do anything.

    so what I'd like to do is:

    he can use all of my bandwith, whenever I don't need it,
    for example when I am not home, afk or just chatting.
    but whenever I need to download something myself, or just need my bandwith for something, for example watching movies,
    I want to have at least 60% of my bandwith.

    I have seen that I can set a max bandwith for him on tomato, for example to 400kbs,
    but yeah that is not exactly what I want.
    I want him to be able to use my full bandwith whenever I don't need it.

    I have no clue how to do that. maybe with QoS?

    use Victek or Toastman build they have a Qos with Bandwidth Limiter that will probably help you with speed control so you get descent web surfing speed whilst the downloads are always at a certain max that they can't exceed.
    If you need quota's set check out Gargoyle Router firmware.
