      Re: reduce bandwidth?

      I may be wrong but I don't think the Sky routers support QofS, which you would normally use to limit bandwidth. Your only option would be something like NetLimiter Unfortunately it is not free, costs about a tenner for the Lite version I think. The free version only allows you to monitor the usage, not control it. It would have to be set up on your kids PC, with some safeguard against them switching it off.
