  1. hi everyone.. m new here...

    listen, i got a ADSL Modem (provided by Airtel Broadband) which is shared by me and my friend. i'm connected to the router via ethernet and my friend via the usb.. after connecting like this i found out that i'm getting bandwidth deficient, my internet speed has become very slow.. my friend uses u-torrent a lot. I know this is happening coz of bandwidth sharing..
    I want to know if there is some cool software that can put a bandwidth throttle to ensure dat both party get atleast a threshold bandwidth limit and doesn't go below dat.. also plz tell me if and how to find out if my friend is 'bandwidth limiting' my system using a 3rd party software or any other way..... guyz and gals plz help on this..........

    The only way to achieve this is to buy an expensive Cisco router with bandwidth control built in.

    There is no software that can do this.
