Subject: [gentoo-user] Rate limiting TCP connections...
Date: Sun, 17 Aug 2008 19:08:13
1 I've a Netgear DG834G router - and I connect two machines to it using
2 Ethernet... one Gentoo; one Windows... it works reasonably well...
4 I hit a snag when downloading a large file from Gentoo - for example a
5 multi-meg portage archive. At such times, the Windows PC seems to be
6 given a rather unfair share of the bandwidth... with the Gentoo box
7 getting 60K/s but the windows PC sometimes even failing to establish DNS
8 lookups before they time-out.
10 Is there a straightforward way to make my Gentoo box 'play fair' and not
11 hog 100% of the bandwidth?
13 Does anyone else have this problem?
