peer-to-peer( lime wire ) is not letting prozilla to download at satisfactory speed


Hello all,
i've two systems on lan. Desktop and laptop.
Desktop has the modem and laptop is accessing internet through Desktop as gateway.
Now the problem is that my friend sits on laptop and use to run "lime wire" for day and night. Once its running it prevents me from downloading something at satisfactory speed. The download speed which i get when limewire does not run is 15-30kbps, but once its running on laptop i only get 2-4kbps speed on Desktop.
I tried with "kget" and prozilla. But both are not able to compete with lime wire.
Anyone could suggest some solution for it ???

Note: its mandatory for me to keep his laptop on internet ( other wise i could have plugged out the lan wire or could have disabled the services in /etc/shorewall/polices )

regards

What type of proxy ??? i've experience with the proxy server to hide the identity on internet. Are you talking about the same or something else.
