Bandwidth Restriction on Home Network

  1. Hey everyone,

    I am currently running a home network with 3 PCs running through a Linksys BEFSR41(ver. 3) ethernet switch from my PC. What is the easiest way to limit the bandwidth availability to the other two PCs? I have the latest firmware for the router, but it does not support the QoS option of limited bandwidth. All PCs on the network are running Windows XP. Thanks for any help you guys can give. :)

    Hi

    the answer is to buy a dam expensive cisco router....

    no seriously home routers arent equipped with this kind of software so there is no way of doing it.

    That sucks, but thanks for letting me know anyways. I was looking into some third-party firmware for my router, but no luck there either.
