  17. Hi ppl i was wondering if there was anything that could be done about my little problem. We have a 20mb(allegedly) connection coming into our house that used to be a 10mg ntl connection until the 1st of may when we changed over. not only has there been no noticeable increase in speed but i have a friend who constantly hogs all the connection by downloading sh*tloads of torrents constantly and was wondering if there was anyway to limit his usage/ allocate say 5mg each to each comp. if this is a stupid idea pls don't flame as im not too up on the workings of networks or t'internet.
