    what service do you have that only allows you a 3 GB cap????

    So far no residential service I know enforces any type of cap except for some of the @home breakoffs (comcast, attbi..etc) which have a 3gb cap on NEWSGROUPS only...that is you can only download 3GB of newsgroup data every 3 days...but as for everything else there is no cap

    so who's ya provider?

    Nope. Windows Internet Connection Sharing does not support bandwidth throttling.

    Actually in Portugal is quite commom a 3 Gb cap or sometimes even less. You have to pay extra for more.
