Bandwidth Splitting?

Postby Turkeyscore.com on Sat Nov 01, 2003 5:07 am

Is there a program that can split bandwidth between 2 computers? I have 2 computers on a network, downloading with one kills the other's bandwidth, I am thinking that if there was a way to give each computer equal set bandwidth, that would be really cool.

In general the router should take care of that, but if you are using a downloading sotfware like getright they have a feature that limits the downloading bandwidth, just look into the preference of the software you are using. The same applies to P2P file sharing softwares like Kazaa.

Your other option is to to go Run-> type gpedit.msc (works on both XP and 2K)

Under Administrative Templates->Network->QOS Packet Scheduler

Right Click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth-> Properties

Enable it and set it to 50%

I tried typing that into the run dialog and i got an error message that said that windows cannot find it

will that make it so I lose bandwidth on one computer even when the other is offline or not doing anything?

Thanks for the reply tazdevl.
What I want to know is,what should I do when using Win ME.I use DAP as my download manager and it kills out all the available bandwidth.
Thanks,

I think that setting microsoft has it by default set to 20% (to make thier background downloads), if you are running only one pc set this to 0%; it sometimes improves a little your conection.

You should search your routers website and see if they have an utillity for this. Still I think your best solution is to set this directly into your downloading manager.
