Is there a way to limit a whole PC windows XP, or a certain program to use only a certain about of your total internet connection bandwidth?

For example, I have 5 PCs in home all one the same ISP connection. I have one PC that I am trying to backup files online but I can only run it at certain times due to the backup program using ALL upload/download speed. And that makes every other PC super slow.

So if I had a way to tell this PC, or program to use only 10% of the Internet connection I could run it all day long.

What program are you using? Some of the larger backup utils have this function built into it, I know CrashPlan does.


This would probably accomplish the same thing, but would be more complicated to setup.

The thing you are looking for it called quality of service if you are using network equipment to do it. You need a router that knows how to do QoS. It often leads to performance problems if not done correctly.
