[Plugin] NetWatcher - Pause deluge if others are using net

The problem: the adsl service that I have s**ks and I also share it with others, this means that using a p2p like deluge will "block" internet for everybody.

So I wrote NetWatcher to automatically detect when others connect to my same router and accordingly pause or resume all torrents. I use it everyday so I can leave it running knowing that it will manage by itself.
I've also implemented a custom logging to a file that I placed in my Dropbox folder to be able to check the situation from everywhere.

The source code is on github along with a bit of documentation.

Is it me, or does this not work on 1.3.6? :(

Hi there!
I'd like to ask what are the options for the IP Addresses in the NetWatcher settings:
-Could it be the routers IP Address or/and the WAN IP (external IP) or/and the Gateway (I don't realy know what this is), excluding the IP of the Deluge-running computer, in order to check the total traffic, in case DHCP Clients come and go? I have set fixed IP Addresses for some of the devices in my DHCP Clients List, but others connect too.
-In general, could I use
192.168.1.2-192.168.1.254 or
192.168.1.2-192.168.1.12, 192.168.1.22 or
192.168.1.2-192.168.1.12, 192.168.1.22, 192.168.1.32-192.168.1.42, 192.168.1.254 or
192.168.1.2-192.168.1.254, -192.168.1.12, -192.168.1.22 (to exclude some IPs)?
I have not tried any of them yet 'cause I don't want to mess things hard to reset...
Thanks
EDIT____
Sorry, forgot the option to spesify an address and a port to exclude, to make Deluge pause even if I start using the network from the same IP:
192.168.1.2-192.168.1.254, -192.168.1.2:55789 or
192.168.1.2-192.168.1.254, -192.168.1.2:55789-55889 ?
Is my fantasy high-scoring?

Hello! I listened to your feedback and just released a new version of the plugin :)

I included the possibility to:
- just slow the torrents
- use address ranges, like: 192.168.1.32-42
- specify a whitelist (ip-addresses to not be checked)

On GitHub along with the source code you can find a more detailed documentation.
I'm afraid I don't check very often the forum, so any feature request or issue reported there will get more attention.

I hope you'll like the overall result! (Let me know if any problem.)

I'm not sure what do you mean... This plugin is using ping requests under the hood. See this SF question: Ping a Specific Port, for more insight on this topic.

Strange... I installed it (after I installed NetWatcher2) and rather then get the options for pausing/resuming, I get the same UI and options as for NetWatcher2, to enter the "speed when client is active". I actually wanted to use both add-ons for two different purposes. Anyone know what the issue here might be? Thanks!

I have the same issue. Anybody solved this problem yet?
I always have this problem when my computer is assigned to the network IP 192.168.1.12
