I have used net limiter many a time, let me tell one best use of Netlimiter.if you have lan based Internet connection and DC++ network on that Lan then you can put netlimiter to prevent users from utilizing your whole bandwidth.else More users connected to your Comp thru DC++ more it will hang.

But Torrent Client now detects Net limiter like tool so wont be useful for those users.

this is a great great tool which i am using from past 6 months and it solved my bandwidth issues because of my extensive use now i monitor it every time 😀

I’ve been looking for something like this since I use an FTP on my home machine to distribute custom maps for COD4. If too many people get on, my whole pipe is victimized! Great!
