I'm living with six other students. We are currently sharing a 2 Mb /384 Kb connection with the use of a router. The problem is that the download speed almost reduces to zero when someone is uploading (for example, by using Limewire). I think a bandwidth manager could solve this problem by limiting some user's upload speed.
Is it possible to give each active user a percentage of the speed available? For example, when two users are active, they can together use all speed, when seven are active, everyone gets the same share.
The lite product is sufficient or do I need the more expensive one?
Thanks, Barry. Yes, currently the bandwidth manager only supports static allocation. You could give the downloaders a fixed maximum transfer rate, but it will remain the same even if the internet link is not busy.
We're working on dynamic allocation and guranteed rates
