You will need
- - NetLimiter.
If you use to create a wireless access point, router, or a router, then open the menu settings. To do this, enter the IP address of this equipment into your browser and press Enter. Open the settings menu wireless network. If this model of router to enable network 802.11 (without letters), the speed channel will automatically be limited to 1 Mbps. Note that this value will be divided by the number of connected Wi-Fi network devices.
If your wifi router does not work with this type of radio, then select "connection Speed" or Connection Speed. Set from 1 to 54. Save the settings and reboot the router.
If you are using a desktop computer and Wi-Fi adapter to create a wireless access point, first try a lower speed channel by using the function of Windows system. Open the properties for the item "My computer" and navigate to device Manager. Find your wireless adapter and right click the mouse on its name. Select "Properties". Open the "Advanced" tab and turn on the mode of operation of 802.11.
If the wifi adapter does not work with this type of radio, then install NetLimiter and let it run. Now find the displayed list, the device you need and set the parameters of speed of Internet access. Be sure to complete both: Incoming and Outgoing. Velocity values in this tool are defined in kilobytes.
Alternatively, the program NetLiniter you can use the utility TMeter and Traffic Inspector. Be sure to save filters that you created, to avoid having to re-configure utility after restarting the computer.
Advice 2 : How to track Internet traffic
Working in the Internet, the user can visually monitor a connection to the network connection icon in the system tray. But in that case, if the connection icon is active even when computer is idle, there is a need to better control traffic.
Uncontrolled network activity of the computer may testify as infecting your system with malware and it is configured incorrectly. So first, open "control Panel" and disable Windows automatic update. Then, after checking the computer, you turn it back on.
Open the startup folder: start – Run, msconfig, startup tab, remove the birds from all unneeded programs. Many of the installed programs themselves register themselves in startup, which slows down the loading and performance of your computer.
Disable all unnecessary services: "start" – "control Panel" – "administrative tools" – "Services". The list of services that can be disabled and a description of the process of disabling find in the Internet.
After the preceding steps, check the operation of your computer. If traffic continues uncontrolled use, open a command prompt: "start" – "All programs" – "Accessories" – "Command prompt". Type the command netstat –aon and see the list of current connections - they will be marked as Established. In the right part of the window you will see a list of process IDs – PID.
Enter in the same window, the tasklist command. You will see a list of running processes, the second column will be listed with their IDs. Comparing the PID from the connection list with the IDs of the processes list, you can find out which processes are using your Internet connection.
If you are unable by process name to determine which program it belongs to, use the utility AnVir Task Manager. Run it, find it in your processes list the one that interests you. In information it is specified as the startup file or the startup key in the registry. AnVir Task Manager utility shows the current connections, it is very useful for system diagnostics.
If you need full control over the traffic, install and run BWMeter. Open the Details tab and click Start in the panel Control. In the program window will indicate all connections with the ip addresses. An additional window will give you full information about the traffic. You can enable verbose logging; all information about the used traffic will be saved in a text file.
This article will be especially useful for those users who use the tariff plan of Internet connection, which implies a restriction on Internet traffic. Let's first understand what is Internet traffic. Internet traffic is the information that you send and receive when working in the Internet (incoming and outgoing traffic).
Traffic (traffic, traffic, attendance) - (from the English. traffic - traffic) - the Appeal of a website or section of the site for advertisers largely depends on how many different people visit it per unit time. "If we can deliver it to you traffic, your website will fall?". Undertaking a large advertising campaign, you should see if you can find your server, and channel on the Internet with significantly increased workload.
Advice 3 : How to limit Internet speed on your computer
In order to limit the speed of the Internet connection of one or more machines in a computer network, you need to make some configuration. In this case you use either router configuration or special software.
You will need
- Software Tmeter.
Because configuring the router for the user a very complex exercise, which can lead to undesirable consequences, use a program to control traffic on local networks. Among the current offerings software, you can select a couple of products: BWMeter and Tmeter. Features of these programs are similar, but the second option has the advantage of the application is completely free.
To limit the speed of the connection, use the filter on IP address for each machine individually. To search for all IP to assign some filters run Tmeter. In the main window, select the following items: "Configuration" and "Set filter".
Then click "Edit" to perform a full edit of the settings file. Create a new configuration file: to do this, click "Add", navigate to "Settings" and check the box next to the line of "Master-filter". Then check the item "Enable speed limit" and set the desired value, for example, 1 Mbps.
In addition to the value of speed of access to the Internet in this window, there are a number of other options that also allow you to impose a limit on data usage. As an example, is to specify the option "a Specific size of traffic consumed", i.e. when achieving any amount is an automatic blocking of access.
For all the usefulness of this program do not forget about its cons. For example, network administration involves constant monitoring and tracking what is happening on the computers of the entire network. But if the administrator's computer will be faulty or de-energized, the control system will be completely broken. Therefore, many professionals advise to configure it the router and then use special software.
