    im planning on sharing my cable connection in my home so i wanna know, is it possible to limit one computers bandwidth so it doesnt hog all the connection? ill be using home edition on all the computers once i get them setup.
    if the QoS option isnt available in home edition, is there any prog i can use to apply something like this?

    thx, Apu

    BTW, ill be using a linksys router (or hub, i always get confused) to split the connection

    Its not possible with that setup. I've only told people this 1,000 times.

    I should put an announcement on top of the forum in big bold letters that says BANDWIDTH THROTTLING IS NOT POSSBILE WITH NAT, ROUTERS, ICS, AND PEER TO PEER LANs


    Seriosuly though, I think 3rd party SOCKS type proxy software can do that for internet usage. Though having a router already defeats the point of a proxy software.

    I Agree with JJB6486 about using a proxy - so using a router is pointless - save the money and get a good proxy like winproxy

    I hate proxy personally. I used to use it but it allways gave me problems because all apps had to support proxies in order to use the Internet connection. Just a big mess.
