    On our home wireless network, one of our users (our teenager!) is tending to
    "hog" the network with large downloads. Is there any way I can set her
    priority to a lower level so that my wife and I can get our email in one
    continuous chunk, instead of getting timed out!
    If this cannot be done within Windows, perhaps someone can recommend a
    third party application.

    Thanks,
    ----------

    An easy solution is to be a parent and kick them off the internet when you
    need it.
