Hi

Got a small home network...

MY PC... Internet connection sharing... Broadband 500mb

Two pc's connected via a network bridge.. but direct into gateway pc.. no hub or anything 100mbs network

Problem, I want to throttle the bandwidth available to the other machines. My eldest is using p2p and ruining my games of City of Heros.. I can disable the bridge if I am feeling particulaly selfish.. but would rather just limit his avaialble bandwidth..

Possible? Any help appreciated

All pc's running xp pro

Why not just have a talk with the little tyke and set down some ground rules? He who pays the bills makes the rules...
