Bandwidth limit on windows XP, or Linksys router?
Posted on 2003-03-19
I have a linksys router that I use to split the internet connection onto 4 computers.... however, one computer, running Windows XP (my sister) is using up our bandwidth limit for the month.... every month. I would like to know if there is a way to limit her connection, either through the linksys router, or locally on her machine without her knowledge. We have a 7 gig download / upload a month, and she uses approximately 6.4 gigs out of the entire cap.
I know that there is QoS in Windows XP, but I've set this to 99% bandwidth limit, and she still is able to download at the regular speeds. So any ideas? Thank you.
Keep in mind, either way.... Limit her through the router, or a setting on her computer for Windows XP. (preferably the router) Thanks.
