Do some google searchs on "QOS" (Qualitly of Service). It's typically done at the router and not by a single PC on your LAN.
Check out this
Here's something that you could do at home
Throttling your bandwidth by program
While most routers treat one request for bandwidth the same as any other, your new $600 router is a step above. By setting up QoS (Quality of Service) rules, you can give priority to your interactive traffic (like VoIP, web browsing, or gaming) while throttling traffic that doesn’t require a steady rate of bandwidth to function (like P2P programs).
Doing so will ensure that even if your network gets clogged with lots of file sharing, you’ll still have enough bandwidth left over to make all of your free SkypeOut phone calls. If you’ve got roommates who tend to sponge up a lot of bandwidth, you can even prioritize by IP address.
add this to syslog.conf
then issue this iptables command
-A FORWARD -o eth0 -j LOG --log-level 7 --log-prefix BANDWIDTH_OUT
-A FORWARD -i eth0 -j LOG --log-level 7 --log-prefix BANDWIDTH_IN
-A OUTPUT -o eth0 -j LOG --log-level 7 --log-prefix BANDWIDTH_OUT
-A INPUT -i eth0 -j LOG --log-level 7 --log-prefix BANDWIDTH_IN
