How to throttle download speeds in Windows XP Pro
Posted on 2010-09-19
At work, we have about 50 users all sharing a single T1 line. When I download some large software update, everyone on our network takes a hit. Is there a way that I can control the rate at which the download occurs? I'm running Windows XP Pro SP3. It wouldn't matter to me if the download takes two hours instead of 20 minutes.
I'd rather not mess with the settings on our routers and switches. If possible, I'd like to control the speed right on the desktop PC.
I ran some Google searches on this topic, but I didn't come up with anything promising.
