Hi,

I want to ask if anybody knows how to limit the bandwidth consumption of a home network/wifi. Actually i have 4 members in a house who share same wifi connection. I just want to allocate limited amount of bandwidth to each user so that one user can not monopolies other user by consuming bandwidth (by downloading contents, since downloading slows down whole network and other users suffers due to this).

is there any possible way to achieve this.

thanks.

not a newbie.....
Try looking up the Quality of Service (QoS) settings on your router.

But they are very advanced stuff. I never could figure out how to set them.

QoS is different from bandwidth control.you need a recent router which has bandwidth control option to do this so check in your router manual.
