How can I split up my network bandwidth between connected PCs with a single router?

riju stensilas April 10, 2012

We have an internet cafe with more than 100 PCs. We are using our bandwidth 10MB. We need to split the connection in two parts, like 5MB for 50 PCs and the rest for the remaining PCs. Please give your valuable suggestion.

    There are a few ways to do this, but I have a question, are the computers on a domain or a workgroup? 

    You could break up the computers into subnets, but this will not help terribly much with your bandwidth.  

    Also a Load balancer will do this, but this is a more expensive option... That said, some routers have basic load balancing functionality. 

    Also here is a software option,, which lets you set down/upload limits.

        Ok, That throws out my other ideas then, The Load balancer or netlimiter are your best options
