How to limit my own bandwidth?


Hi! I've got home network which have 2Mbps access to Internet. I need to limit my computer to use no more than 500kbps. The problem is I don't have access to home server or its configuration, so I need to set this limit on my computer and nowhere else. Is this possible? When using Windows I use NetLimiter 2 Pro which is working very fine. Thanks for anything which can help me

Oh, BDW: I'm newbie and sorry for my terrible english...

If you want something "easy" that directly hooks into Iptables maybe try the LARTC Wondershaper for starters?

If you have time to read a lot of material, this is a great website that will help you do just about anything you want. Just find that section that describes what you want to do with iproute2. Originaly, I used the information in this document to throttle my upload to make sure it didn't interfere with my download speed. That was back when I was using a modem.
