    If you are using a Linksys Router then more than likely you will have a feature under Applications and Gaming called QOS (Quality of Service). You can throttle the bandwidth there either by Application or MAC Address and Port.

    Copied this out of mine:

    The WRT54G offers two types of Quality of Service features, Application-based and Port-based. Choose the appropriate offering for your needs.

    Application-based Qos: You may control your bandwidth with respect to the application that is consuming bandwidth. There are several pre-configured applications. You may also customize up to three applications by entering the port number they use.

    Port-based QoS: You may control your bandwidth according to which physical LAN port your device is plugged into. You may assign High or Low priority to devices connected on LAN ports 1 through 4.
