so is there any way to divide both the download and upload speed between 3 computers and a playstation 3 ?

that would be a big help : )

If you all have same set up then download and upload when they are sleeping or doing chores.

Sorry. You ISP determines your d/l and u/l speeds. If you have a finite bandwidth, splitting that bandwidth among 3 computers will not yield a greater d/l speed.

Sounds like this would be something suited for Parental Controls. Especially for how much time they spend on the computer.

It will depend on your Wifi card if your Brothers have a more recent Wifi card then yours will be killed off

You can Block there IP address if you want by entering your Routers Settings to do this follow this tutuorial

This shows how to access the Router see your Routers manual for Details of Blocking IP address

Hope This Helps,
Josh
