Man. I've forgotten the name of the proggie. Sorry. :(
Didn't bother remembering it to be honest because it meant that I had to install the thing on each and every machine that wanted to share my internet connection in order to limit it's usage. Too much of a hassle, would rather have the manufacturers like Linksys, Netgear to implement such an option for bandwidth restriction within their routers.

I know this thread is a little old, but I found a program called net-peeker. I was looking for something becuase my brother had 50 downloads in kazza and 5 torrents going at once, and we have 3 other computers on the home network. Amyways I've taken a look at this net peeker and I've found it better then netlimiter IMHO. It has a global option so that you can set a global d/l and/or u/l speed or you can do it by application, you can set up bandwidth rules much like you would firewall rules. I havn't played with it in depth yet but one nice thing is that you can password protect it, which was a requirement for me. It also has a built in firewall and a few other tools, which I have yet to use.

The only downside I've found is that it's not free, but you can't have everything.

That sounds like a great program. I'll probably need something similar to that when I set up my first home network in a couple of weeks. Here's that link:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
