Hi
I have been looking for a bandwidth limiter for some time now because when I upload at my max speed, it kills my downstream (4 mbits down, ~300 kbits up). Would there be a way that I could limit my total upstream from my computer to say 240 kbits? I did find shaperd, but I could not understand any of the documentation that I read about it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi,

this may be a bit of a overkill http://www.linuxhelp.ca/forums/index.php?a...=ST&f=15&t=6767 , if you have only one computer...

But you can use some really crap machine for this like a p1 or p2 around 200~ mhz with 32-128MB ram, and a 1GB hdd , plus 2 ethernet cards

Sincerely
Robert B

i just read that before i made the post and looked at Bandwidth Arbitrator, it appears that it costs money. all i really want is a program that i can say 200 kbit upload.

i have an ipcop router and i cannot specify the max upload in that either.


thanks for the reply, get back to me on if it is free or not

Hi,

that is free, since you install it youreself, there is a commercial version that is bundled on a cd...

but this one is, free , it was free for a long time and it seems it will be free for a long time to come.

What's eating up all your upload speed?

Bittorrent clients (Azureus is a good one) lets you limit your upload speed.

If you have a website that's using all this up, check out bw_mod or mod_bandwith (depending on your version of apache).
