  Controlling bandwidth on a router 
 Date Written 
Daniel Grimmer Nov 23, 2005, 03:12pm EST Report Abuse

I'm currently using a Netgear DG834G (latest 3.01.25 firmware) router, and I was wondering if it was possible to control, or limit, the network traffic on it? Without the use of 3rd party progs like bandwidth Controller preferrably! My problem is that I have a PC and a laptop sharing the internet from the router and the laptop is hogging all the bandwidth, especially when they (the laptop isn't mine) are using azureus... my download speeds are reduced to about 20k/sec.... on a 2mb ADSL line!! I would like to set the laptop to a fixed, or capped, download speed... my question is: Is this possible?!

Thanks in advance!

If you want to do that at the router you will need a much more expensive router. Off hand I don't recall any other that the Cisco routers, but they're pretty pricey and not designed for the home network type application. Then again if you research you might be able to find one that happens to do the trick.

Yeah, thats pretty much what I feared from the searches I did before posting. In that case, ideally what I'd be looking at is a piece of software that will run on my PC (the main one) and allow me to controll all the badwidth from there... from what I've seen so far though, those progs need to be installed on ALL machines, like a client/server setup!
