I'm living in a household with two computers, and I'd like to set up an arrangement so that download and upload bandwidth is equally distributed between the two computers. Is there a good program that does this? I would Google it, but it's quite an obscure thing to find, and I don't want to end up installing any funny programs.

Thanks in advance.

I have never had the need to use any, but what you are looking for is: Bandwidth Management Software Wasn't that obscure. :thumbsup:

I'd just try and make sure that the other isn't using it while I was....

Because a lot of the time, you're probably not on it while they're downloading things, or such. Unless you both have torrents going, and/or have huge bandwidth needs, its probably nicer to just have the full bandwidth if the other person isn't using it.

Really, I don't think its worth the hassle, and/or time and money.
