How to limit upload rate?


Hi,

I have a linux box running between my router and my LAN. My connection speed is 10MB download and 1MB upload. The issue is that whenever someone starts to upload something, it is like my connection is down. No one else can open websites, read emails etc.

Is it possible to place a limit for upload, maybe 50kb/s? This way, people won't use the entire upload speed available.

Thanks!

google "bandwidth throttling" and "bandwidth shaping". The exact method depends on how you have configured that linux box.
