Is there a program which would allow me to say allow Program1 to use 50% of my internet connection bandwidth (56k modem), Program2 to use 25% and Program3 to use the remaining 25%, when all are trying to access at the same time?

Also, is there a way for me to "force" 2 computers on a network to equally share a 56k connection when both are trying to access at the same time?

Is something like this even possible (without me having to run a Linux router)?


I am running Windows XP home with SP1

There's a program called Netlimiter that does this and more - it can be found at www.netlimiter.com.

The best thing is, there is a shareware version available that is fully featured, EXCEPT you can only allocate 16kb/s - any bandwidth above this is choked by the program. As you are on a 56k modem however, I dont see this being a problem.
