I have been asked if I can configure a network for a company so that it can split the bandwidth from their ISP to two different Windows' workstations. One workstation is for uploading large files and the other is for downloading large files. There is one dedicated ISP line for these two workstations to share.
1. Is it possible to designate half the bandwidth to one machine and the other half to the other through a firewall/switch?
2. If so, does anyone have a recommendation of a firewall/switch that is reliable and has the configuration features I need?
Thank you in advance for any help, advice or suggestions!
