      bandwidth restriction

      Hi Guys

      I get my Sky broadband connected tomorrow and was wondering if it is possible to restrict the bandwidth each PC on my router can use.

      My 6 year old watches cartoons online and generally opens 9 or 10 firefox sessions with streamed videos which buggers up my connection. I am currenty with BT who were no help but I have my new sky D-Link router (can not see model on it just D-Link)

      Any one know of a setting on the router or some software so I can allocate bandwidth to use for the 2nd PC?

      Any suggestions are welcome

      You can install throttling software on the pc but theres nothing on the router to do this.
