Bandwidth sharing

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

    Here are some software alternatives that would run on the ICS PC

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