    I've just purchased a Linksys Etherfast DSL/Cable router with a four port switch. Right now, I've got two Linux connected computers on it. The network map looks like:


    The problem is one of the computers is sucking a good chunk of the bandwidth through Bittorrent. We share a connection, but right now, the speed is so bad, I can't even view the web decently. Is there a way to limit the amount of data his computer can send and receive through the router? Like set it to 75k a second or something? Please help.. this thing is driving me crazy. I've heard of QOS, but I haven't been able to set it up effectively.

    Tomato has the most effective and easiest to use QOS control. It will easily tame your torrent woes. I use it on commercial properties with 8 or 9 torrent/P2P users at a time. You can specify both upload and download of various classifiactions of traffic down to the percent. Hard to believe until you try it. Drop by the Tomato forum !
