I need LAN BW Manager

Hi
I am using 4 Mbps ADSL line at home with 4 pc.
I need a software to specify 1 Mbps of my line to each pc and don't let one member access all band width when downloading.

Is there any software to do it simple and easy?
I tried PRTG Network Monitor software but it is so complicated and I couldn't work with it.
Tnx

I suggest you get a managed switch and limit the bandwidth at the port level on the switch.

Understood.

If you ever get to that point, you may want to check out an Adtran 3120.  It comes with an easy to use URL filter, Top Talkers, and other user reports that can give you a good summary of where the bandwidth is going.  You can also set priorities based on logical ports which can really help.

I checked market, the price is abt 400 $, it is so much dude. does not worth using at home, even second hand type. All websites suggested as a biz device not home use.

You can use following softwares for this purpose.

1.  Isa server (http://isaserver.org)
2.  NetLimiter (http://www.netlimiter.com/download.php)

In Isa you can easily define bandwidth rules to manage bandwidth.

What you  need is something like Antamedia's bandwidth manager. You'll need a pc with 2 nics to serve as a gateway to the internet. once you install the software on it, you are done. No need to install in the other pcs. It uses mac addresses and IP to manage your bandwidth so any os can be controlled.
