I'm using Bitcasa to back up things, but it doesn't have builtin bandwidth upload throttling. So consequently it sucks up all the bandwidth and the entire houses network comes to a stop. This also happens to make browsing the web impossible. This would be easy to do if Bitcasa used a nonstandard port, but it uses 433 to upload to Amazon's EC. I have other applications that also need full bandwidth to EC (intermittently), so throttling those domains won't work either. What I really need is an application specific throttling App . Help? (OS X ML).

I'm coordinating a project that involves sending participants to remote communities in the Canadian North. The communities have varying speeds of internet connection, but in general, I've been told it's pretty slow, and sometimes bandwidth is restricted. The participants need to record video of themselves and send it to their evaluators back here in the city. What is the best (free) solution? [more inside]

My modem: every day I must kill the power, wait a few minutes, then power it back up in order to have any decent speed at all. Without this crude fix, I'm getting around 400 Kbps. Once I reboot it, however, I can manage a decent 4.0 Mbps. I've bypassed the router, tried different computers, and the issue persists. (Oh, and I don't have any kind of per-day download limit that's throttling me.) I'd rather try to correct the problem myself before spending endless hours on the phone with my ISP's tech support. Any idea what's going on here?

I've got a Netgear WNR2000v2 wireless router, and am sharing my DSL connection with a neighbor. My apartment uses the main network and my neighbor is on a guest network. What's been happening lately is that the Internet gets really slow, and what I'd like to do is to cap the guest network at, say, 75kBps. I don't know if she's running torrents or what, but I would like to have the fast Internet that I'm paying for. [more inside]

Our Organization uses Windows live messenger to connect clients at remote locations (children and their parents who are separated by distance). We chose this program because of it's ease of use/install for the general public. Unfortunately, some of the connections are poor quality; the video cuts out or the voice is garbled or the connection stalls altogether. MS says all that is required is dial up but we always require broadband to connect. i cannot find a comprehensive list of system/bandwidth requirements or troubleshooting tips. Any help in these areas would be excellent! Thank you!

Throughput, download speed, bandwidth, or something else -- which of these am I trying to say? I can download a huge file, topping speeds of around 140 KB/s. Is 140 KB/s my maximum download speed? And isn't that speed the same for all information I can receive, or just file transfers? [more inside]

One internet connection shared between three computers. One jackass who uses the entire download limit(!!) and gets our speed capped(!!). So, what software or hardware solutions might there be?? Secrecy isn't a concern. That they are too stupid to be trusted is. Is there maybe something that monitors where the data is going? And also a way to hobble their line speed, once they've reached their 'share'. (I'd prefer not to just yank their cable out completely, but whatever.) I have no idea (keywords to google??) so I'm completely open to suggestion on this :) Thanks! [more inside]

On the podcast for This American Life, Ira claims NPR spends $140,000-$160,000 per year just on bandwidth for the podcast. To those of you who do hosting & have some vague idea how much bandwidth TAL's podcast would take: Does this seem reasonable to you? [more inside]
I'm having bandwidth allocation issues between different pieces of software on my Mac (10.5.5). When uploading photos using the flickr uploader or when the computer is backing up using Mozy, both of these programs tend to use all the available bandwidth on my dsl line. This makes it nearly impossible to use the internet for anything else on this machine or my PC laptop. Is there a way to adjust the bandwidth that these programs use?
I have a Business Cox Internet account which is supposed to be 6mb/s down and 768kb/s up. The problem is that it never comes close to providing those speeds. I spent about an hour on the phone yesterday with a tech support guy. It was a terrible circular discussion that hinged completely on speakeasy's bandwidth test. His position was that since speakeasy's results showed that I was getting the proper amount of bandwidth everything was fine. [more inside]

I'm looking for a software PC-to-PC VoIP program that will handle an extremely low bandwidth connection with high UDP packet loss.

I need web hosting, and my needs are pretty narrow. I don't need fancy tools or applications, everything I'm doing is pretty much text. I don't need hand-holding or customer service. But what I DO need is to not have to worry that if any of my domains (I've got five or six) go viral, I'll be socked with $$$$ bandwidth overage bills. That happened to me once a long time ago, and I still have trauma scars. I realize that no hosting service can offer, like, infinite bandwidth. At a certain point, service would either cut off or else overage charges will cut in. But are there any web hosting outfits out there known to have particularly generous bandwidth limits, and reasonably priced overage charges beyond those limits?
