Internet Shaping Program - Vista

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN


i am looking for a internet shaping program to control bandwidth


each and every month, before the internet resets, normally a week or 2 before

we get shaped (speed slowed) , thats because no one will agree to control our internet useage, and i am just sick and tired of it, i am willing to control it, but my sister does not, and even if she does agree, next few days shes downloading youtube, limewire etc with friends,

i honestly don't care what she does on the pc , i just want to limit speeds and download - and i need a program to do that, that runs in the background freeware would be best, but i am willing to pay for a program so long as it isnt too costly

i have worked it all out, we have 25GB plan at 1500/256 $80 AUD a month


8GB - Me
8GB - Sister
8GB - Step Sister

with 1GB to spare

and i want to shape it so its at 54kb/sec for each user instead of the full speed 162kb/sec that way there is no slowness for either user , so we can all use it without it slowing down for one of us

with all that set, our internet wont get shaped each month, and we can't lag each other while downloading, its a great plan

just need a good program to do this
ill hide it so it runs in the background, and ill remove the entry in the uninstall programs list so it can't be found, also program install files will be hidden

etc

so does any know of a good program to do this?

thanks for the help - software doesn't control useage/speeds sadly
just monitors or has ability to setup proxy

when i need internet speed control, and download use age control, like you can only use 8GB a month then disconnect or speed slowed to xx kb/sec

well id rather not have to use a proxy , id rather a program control the useage for me

1 way i know of is to setup my pc as a gateway, and control it from my pc because all users will have to connect to my desktop to get to the internet

but that will take a hit on resources and i probably wont be able to game as well any more, so id rather just have a program to install on their PCs to do it


all computers in the house use Vista now (finally got rid of the old XP)
