    Any suggestions on applications (or even using terminal?) to limit the network speed of a computer?

    Thanks

    Sure. Two computers on my network, and when one opens up web pages (or downloads files, or whatever), it drops the speed of the other computer significantly. This can be a pain when playing realtime internet games.

    so basically you want to set the bandwidth a computer has access to?


    I'm not sure how to do that on your mac, (try google) but im sure you can do that your router.

    This was an issue with older routers as well. The newer ones route and equalize traffic a lot better. Consider getting a new router as a simple fix.
