Is there any way for me to configure something so that no matter what other apps and machines are using my internet bandwidth, Wget will always get first priority?

(So that even if I'm streaming lots of videos and such on other machines on my network, Wget's download speed will be limited only by the remote host and my internet connection)

Since wget isn't in windows, I'll draw my card for how to do it under ubuntu linux: https://askubuntu.com/questions/165577/how-do-i-reserve-bandwidth

  • wget does exit for Windows but agree safe assumption the user is using Linux – Ramhound Jan 3 '14 at 22:41
  • Yeah, I expressed myself badly; I've got wget installed on windows right now since it's such a great program. There's a lot of tools lacking by default. – brunch875 Jan 3 '14 at 22:50
