Is it possible to limit the bandwidth on certain computers? I got roommates that all they do is download music, movies, and have tons of download queued up. I know that there is this QoS on my router setup, but is there a way of limiting their speed.

The amount of speed you get in from your internet provider. Or if (in your case) the school has N speed and you have a G computer. Then that will also have a difference. It feels like im missing something else

IP Cop does that. It's called Traffic Shaping. You need another computer with a NIC card (get a cheapy old one off CL and use it just for this purpose).

Post what type of router you have and I'll see if I can help you find a manual on how to do it.
