Slow internet down on a computer.





jarred89
Hello,

Is there a free program where I can slow down the internet on a computer? My sister just downloads and downloads and we go over our monthly quota. Can someone please help me.

Thanks.

I've heard of NetLimiter and there will be others as well:

However, you're looking for a technical solution to a social problem. The easiest way is to teach your sister not to download so much! Or at least how to check the cap before doing so.

Only allow her to access the internet for a limited time. Keep on going that until she understands why. You may also want to block file downloads by making the download folder read-only or use Vista's Parental Controls.

Or block her download sites.

If she's using a Torrent program you can probably block it in your router's firewall, or reconfigure the software to use a port which isn't open.


If she's spending all day on Youtube, and you're using Firefox, you can probably use Adblock Plus to block elements of the site Smile
