I've got 4 computer on a home network, connection is 2Mb down/1Mb up. It's more than enough for all 4 comps to run what they need: online vids, radio, net games, surfing etc...
A problem arises when someone decides to download movies, games, tv shows etc, non stop, choaking the connection and leaving everybody else with a slow laggy connection.
Is there a program that limits bandwidth that is password controlled? I manage the 4 computers, so i'm at liberty to install what is needed.
I have NetLimiter on my pc, but that's accessed by anyone who wants to just raise the limit.

Do you have a hub or a switch?

when you tell this software to limit bandwidth, it do its job fairly

all bets are off...
Installed and tested it. Looks like a good app, but it doesn't have any sort of password control and looks like it needs to be installed on a PC gateway.
