Network Management via router

Hi,

I have 2 PC's in my home network connecting to the internet through a DG864G Wireless Router. The main PC (WinXP Pro) connects via ethernet cable and the 2nd PC (WinXP Home) connects via wireless network card. I want to control the bandwidth used by the 2nd PC and do this remotely via the main PC.

Can anyone help?

It just doesn't work that way..
Can you explain the situation a little better so that we can help you come up with a workaround?

Unless the router itself has a bandwidth control feature - and yours does not - then you're pretty much out of luck.

There is one application. There are a ton of others out there.

You could also set up your network to go through a proxy. Every proxy server I have seen has bandwidth control built into it.
