I am using a PLDT MY DSL MODEM
i heard about QoS but i don't know how to use it, my problem is whenever i play games, and someone goes to you tube, my ping just goes crazy high, is there a way i can limit the amount of bandwidth they can get? in order for the WiFi to prioritize my laptop instead of their gadgets

You can do it by putting a limit on the specific device in your router's configuration. You should be able to get to it through 192.168.1.1 and entering the admin username and password most likely written on the router itself. This does take a little bit of knowledge though and would require the person to somewhat know what they are doing.
Adrian:
You can't, that is a basic fact with typical home routers. Home routers do not have the smarts (for the most part) to control individual user bandwidth. Some exceptions do exist, for some high end home routers that do have some Egress and Ingress bandwidth controls, per IP address. That means you would have to assign IP manually to yourself to allow high bandwidth, or set a range for everyone else to lower their bandwidth.
One would have to shop around for a home router that has specifically stated "bandwidth controls"
Allan:
Tell them that they can you use this amount of usage because you have a limit to your wifi usage.

Not easily on a DSL modem unfortunately.

You would be better off getting a router instead. As that would manage your bandwidth better
