How can I adjust my networking speed?


I know this is kind of akward, but I want to know if there is a way to slow down my network card speed (below 10 mpbs in my 10/100 network card), or if there is any kind of software that can adjust the network connection speed every individual program has in my computer.

Perhaps have a look at trickle

Quote:
In short

trickle is a portable lightweight userspace bandwidth shaper. It can run in collaborative mode (together with trickled) or in stand alone mode.

trickle works by taking advantage of the unix loader preloading. Essentially it provides, to the application, a new version of the functionality that is required to send and receive data through sockets. It then limits traffic based on delaying the sending and receiving of data over a socket. trickle runs entirely in userspace and does not require root privileges.
Reading the very clear (and with excellent examples) man page and the trickle.conf man page you can see it's very easy to manage bandwidth systemwide and per application.
