Windows 7: Easy way to limit my wifi speed (clients getting greedy)

Let's get this straight. It's your router and you are letting your neighbour(s) surf the Internet (and potentially the contents of your system) free of charge? And they are taking advantage of this and using up most of your bandwidth?

How do you connect to the router? If by Ethernet cable, you can just turn the wireless section off (and/or unscrew the antenna) when you want an uninterrupted connection. Your neighbour(s) can't complain, since they are having what is in effect a free connection. If they do complain about you disconnecting them, then I think it's about time that you told your neighbour(s) (politely) that they should pay a nominal amount per week/month for the use of your connection or, if they refuse, to get their own router and pay their own bills. Download speeds in South Africa are low enough (Your Specs: 54Kb/s) without others leeching your connection.

There's something to this. I don't know where you are, but in the US I don't know of any TOS where this is legal. What's more, if among all those voluminous downloads there are copyright violations - or worse - you may find yourself seriously on the wrong end of the law. I'm not a lawyer, but that's something to think about.

Now to the problem. Looking at your router's data sheet, it supports QOS. This means that you can isolate clients, perhaps by MAC address, and limit their bandwidth. You may be able to limit usage times as well. Or maybe you can create a second SSID which they use and limit its bandwidth - a better way to do it.

Or you could play with the broadcast channel and find a frequency that doesn't work well over distance - and use it.

I tend to think the straightforward personal approach may be best - that is, if this arrangement should continue at all. I would be careful.

Why dont u trying the way i've told u...
If u've user id & password provided by your service provider then u can easily do it.

U just need to share your internet connection in a home group like we share files.
and then u'll have a chance to limit it via that software.
