    I'm going to set up a home network with a linksys 4 port dsl/cable router and I was wondering if there was anyway to direct most of the bandwidth to one computer...like put one comp at 50% and the rest splitting what's left...

    QoS Packet scheduler requires a Windows 2000 Server domain with a QoS enabled gateway or something like that. There is no way to throttle bandwidth to certain computers (using ICS, router, hub, whatever) on a plain Peer to Peer LAN.

    The router and the computers themselves have no way of bandwidth throttling. Its not possible.
