The routers from the Brazilian manufacturer Intelbras allow the user to limit the speed of the Internet with just a few clicks. The function, called Bandwidth Control, manages connection usage and allows you to set both the download and upload speed that each device connected to the wireless or cable network is entitled to.
The feature can be useful to minimize the impact caused when the connection is overloaded or even to choose which devices will get the Internet faster. See, in the following tutorial, the step-by-step how to use and configure Bandwidth Control on your Intelbras router.
