How to limit bandwidth to single usb port

Hi,

Is there any way I can set USB bandwidth usage limits on a particular USB port/device that will allow me to cap max usage to say 50Mbps or 100Mbps? I am looking for some kind of QoS setting for USB devices that will prevent the device from gobbling up more than the specified amount of bandwidth. % or had Mbps limits will both work.

Thanks!

  1. I don't believe so, why would you want to do that anyway?

    He says right in the OP why: " I am looking for some kind of QoS setting for USB devices that will prevent the device from gobbling up more than the specified amount of bandwidth. % or had Mbps limits will both work."

    On topic: I don't think there is any software that does that, that said i've never gone looking for it.
  3. Don't believe such a thing is possible, as bandwidth consumption is determined simply by the device itself and i don't think software exists where you can control USB port bandwidth. There is a set peak bandwidth the USB ports are capable of and the devices play only to that limit.
