The problem with QoS is it's on a device-to-device basis. Some routers have very good QoS policies that actually work. Generally, however, QoS on a home-based network doesn't really benefit the network. The way QoS works is on a priority basis. If you set someone to only use X then you are also telling the system to always give them at least X. So while you think you are limiting them, you are actually limiting every other connection on the network. If you want true traffic control, you need a router firmware that supports it. DDWRT is a good place to start, but be careful. Upgrading firmware can brick a device.

So no simple way to tell Windows update ip, to take it easy? I dont wanna cut it off, i just want to limit the speed of which is are updating the computers on my network.

Seems like a simple task, but i guees not :S

Im using a Zyxel zywall 310. I got 450 devices updating Windows via torrent locally and through the internet.
But to let the local torrent system take over, i would like to limit the Windows update ip speed.

I have no WSUS and i have no plan to get one. And the PC's are not controlled by me, so cant tell them not to update. And i also want them to update, but just slower.

Windows update can do 28GB of data on 1 day, with 450 PC's updating. This goes on for 3 weeks.

Best regards Mike Kristensen

It sounds like you might want to look at Bandwidth Management. However, you're going to need to know the IP(s) that you want the restricts to apply to.

Pages 353 - 358 should help:
