How do I restrict internet access speed on Win2000
Posted on 2003-11-10
Hi. I am setting up a laptop on my home network for casual family browsing, but I don't want webpage requests hogging the bandwidth. I have a router and I have scoured its config menu and manual, only to find nothing on connection speed restriction/throttling/quota.
Calls itself "Wireless Router with 4-port Fast EtherSwitch"
Or more specifically "Wireless Router ver 1.01.000.257"
Isn't generic hardware fun?
I could set up a static DCHP ip for the laptop if it would help.
The laptop will be running Windows 2000 Pro SP4 (as soon as I put some more RAM in it, a few days from 11/10/03). It will be on a wireless network (802.11b, if it matters). I would really like to keep the speeds to the LAN as fast as possible but impose a max on downstream and upstream.
Any and all help is greatly appriciated! (Lots of points  for the taking to the winning answer)
