Network Bandwidth Throttling with PowerShell RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I questioned this in many websites but haven't got an answer yet and hope I find the right place.

    I have many Windows 10 computers in the gigabit LAN to look after and I am trying to limit Internet bandwidth uploading and downloading with Powershell on each computer and found 'New-NetQosPolicy' comlet might do this.

    PS>New-NetQosPolicy -Name 'BandwidthLimit' -IPProtocol Both -ThrottleRateActionBitsPerSecond 1MB

    The above command seems ok but it limits only uploading and I assume that the comlet is designed for servers so that is why it works like that.

    Is there a way to limit both uploading and downloading bandwidth?

    Also, the comlet is not available in Windows 7 Powershell even though I upgraded it to the latest version. Do I need to do some extra work to make it available in Windows 7?

    Thanks for reading.

    Charles

    QOS only effects targets and sources that support the QOS protocol extensions.
