I have a ADSL connection of 600k/s me and brother shares it, but he always download stuff, is there a way where i can restrict the amount of k/s hes getting, so when i play some game, he wont disturb me.

if i can do it from my computer dynamically to control his... that would be great!

thx for any help :)

Unless your router has support for that, or your machine has two NICs, and he's actually routing through your PC (through a proxy or whatever on your machine), then there probably isn't much you can do.

What operating system are you using? Are your computers both connected to a concentrator, or is the second computer routed through yours?

You would have to throttle the bandwidth using the router/concentrator (its both). I checked the manual for that product and both "throttle" and "bandwidth" were not mentioned. It looks like the best you can do is configure the second computer (and, of course, your changes could be un-done).

You can get 3rd party software to throttle bandwidth (which would slow the local network connection) or configure individual applications.

If it was me, I'd just smack him in the head. ;-)

there is a program out there called netlimiter, not sure if it will work in your scenario though. But if he is using p2p applications you can throttle the bandwidth used for that particular program. CHeck out netlimiter and see of that may help you.

or you could always get him to install this firewall http://cubaneo.250free.com/Personal/The ... iVirus.jpg
my personal opinionwould be to set up a shedual and during those times you have more bandwidth, he gets more, shared, etc.

i'd look around in your routers main IP (192.168.1.1 occasionally) to see if yo ucan find any banwidth controls.
