There are two methods that could possibly accomplish this for you, could you provide the exact model of the router please?

Don't know that model but probably not - load balancing is not a feature you find in cheaper routers.

Yeah, sorry I never got back to this thread lost track of it. The router does not support load balancing or any other feature I could figure out how to use to limit bandwidth.

You're right of course.
I only had the impression in the past that the term "load balancing" was so popular that everybody understands immediately what it's about, even when actual load balancing is the exact opposite.
