Hi,

Anyone knows a good NetLimiter alternative?
Because I don't like how NL manages my program access to internet, and it's very crashable.

PS: NetLimiter limits the access to the internet of the programs you use, so you can limit the download/upload of specific applications to avoid extreme usage of bandwidth in that apps that doesn't have a limit or something in the options.

Thanks

Dr. Leech, I haven't had the same problems (yet) with NetLimiter, but here a page of suggestions to start with:

              http://www.programurl.com/software/bandwidth.htm

A lot of this software is related to FTP transfers, but I have not found any freeware in this category. You might also test something like File Catalyst.

Check out cfosSpeed - doesn't just do speed limiting but some "quality of service" like packet reordering too.

Another one (I think someone from DC mentioned it to me last year) is NetPeeker.  It has some firewall-like features, but it also does what Netlimiter does.

Personally, I've tried some of these programs, and I like Netlimiter.  I think you're right about the crashing bit, I remember it being just a tad unstable sometimes.  But it's interface was the easiest and most efficient for just bandwidth limiting.
