Some routers give you the ability to limit the amount of bandwidth each machine is allowed to use. That's probably the best solution, depending on what kind of router you have.

Alternatively, I would expect it to be <i>possible</i> for a program to be written to run on each machine that would limit the amount of bandwidth the system is using. I would think that this would have some interesting effects, though... for example, it would probably be possible for the user to close the limitation program and then get full bandwidth. Also, it would almost certainly have to restrict ALL bandwidth going through that computer's network adapter -- not just Internet traffic.

But, that's just a guess. I've never seen such software, and a quick search revealed nothing. If you find something, please reply to this thread and share your results!
