Limiting wireless Internet shared with lodgers

Started by dan

I dl the trial version before buying to see how it work, but don't know where to start.

I cant get past the connect screen always getting errors.

I have a dlink wireless 624 secured. I have a border living with me now and he is using my internet. I don't mind him using it but I want to limit his bandwidth, how do I do that.

I downloaded softperfect bandwidth manager but can't get it to work. I can't connect it to start.

How do you suggest I limit his bandwidth?

Thanks in advance

If he accesses the Internet through a wireless link directly to the DLink access point, then there is no way to limit his bandwidth unless you can install the bandwidth manager on his computer.
