    Hi everyone,

    are there any programs that can control what speed a user can be limited to etc?

    I have a netgrear dg thingy, that common router.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    In short, with your current kit, no.

    To-do what you require, router side you need packet management /QoS (Quality of Service) to prioritize packets from certain subnets/domains/hosts

    you can achieve this "cheaply" with smoothwall and QoS 2.2 Patch, which allows packet shaping/control and bandwidth throttling.

    Alternatively if you wish to limit another network user’s bandwidth, software is available to limit the amount of bandwidth the host try's to use, but you would need access to the particular host.

    You could run a program called NetLimiter, which I am unsure if you have to pay for it.

    net limiter is shareware, but it certainly does that job I use it on my pc's otherwise i just soak up all the bandwidth at home and the landlord gets ****** because he cant use the net

    Hmm, is there anything I can use similar, but for my linux box? I had it set up to listen to music at school, but it used all the upload so that my dad couldn't connect to t'internet when I was listening at school.
