Capping upload speed

Hi everyone. I have a question about networking how can i cap a ips upload speed?
Now you may ask why. The reason is i have a sister who is addicted to youtube and she uploads videos alot. When she does its almost impossible to do anything on are internet. So is there a way i can cap a internal ip address?
Thanks~Dayto

  1. have you checked if your router supports QoS?

    you might be able to set youtube to low priority.
  2. i have looked though my router and havent found anything ill recheck again but i dont think so

    Try using this.

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/Network-Tools/Bandwidth-Tools/Bandwidth-Controller-Personal-Edition.shtml

    It's called Traffic Shaper and it allows for you to monitor and manipulate traffic on your home network. From there you can limit services your sister uses (YouTube in this case), and it's free. There are a lot of other bandwidth management freewares out there, so if you don't like this one you can always move to another!

    Best of luck.
