    Joel, he has a full user level bandwidth management package installed. I think part of the problem these days is the expectations of many folks that have 50-100 Mbps cable or fiber service at home. Even with a modest 80% occupancy, there's still not a lot of bandwith available to serve all the devices the average guest has connected at peak times. I just counted 8 devices in our coach alone that are Internet connected.

    Yep no matter what is provided it will never be enough.

    Basically we had to put a stop to Netflix and the like. The internet was much improved when we did that. As a place with a good population of permanant year round people we just could not supply the bandwidth for everyone to stream movies.

    Regulars permanents can use the wifi all they wany less movie streaming. For that a private connection is now required.

    Also for owners who are not aware of this yet, some folks will check into an RV Park and download Copyrighted movies and music which then causes the property owners to get warnings from the ISP that they need to control this behaviour or loose service. This type of abuse where someome steals a movie or two a month now cost the property owners a couple thousand a year to use a service or system to block this. In our case if someone trys to bypass the system the system by making adjustments at their device they automatically get the interner not available icon on thier device.

    One last tip here. Lets say you want to be nice and make the connection easy for the users and have a simple login seems harmless. No so you may neighbors that purchase high power point to point devices and pull thier service from you. They will even spend the night to get a password.

    So changing passwords regularly will help this and blocking Netflix is a deturant kind of like let it be easier to steal from the next guy.

    Can not find edit button. Next to last paragraph should say,

    Not so you may have neighbors.

    Sort of like the difference between the old time party line phones versus a private line, if you're old enough to remember those days.

    I do remember the days of party line phones, hence the phrase "One ringy-dingy, Two ringy-dingy, Three ringy-dingy" Wow does that bring back memories.... LOL
