Windows 7: limit bandwidth

limit bandwidth

hi!

I need to limit internet bandwidth on my desktop.

Maximum download speed, given by ISP is 470 kb/s.

Now, how can I limit it within Windows(7 Pro) to for example 250 kb/s ?

I would like to avoid commercial software, and I don't want to limit every program manually.

Best regards

DO you mean you wish to avoid paying for the software, or commercial software in general?

Well, I would like to explore if some freeware can do what I want. Or if it can be done under Windows. Commercial software is last option. I don't plan to use pirated software

Tried netlimiter, but I did not find an option to limit bandwidth globally, just per process.

I did find this option in NetPeeker...but I can install in on Win 7 because it throws error that driver being installed are not signed and verified. And it is commercial, trying to find freeware

Is there any reason why you want to limit your bandwidth? Does your Internet access plan have a monthly download limit?

The reason is my brother with his online game playing, and simultaneous voice chat...it consumes my bandwidth, so I cant work on Internet
