How to limit USB bandwidth usage by a specific USB port/device?

sgifanatic
Is there any way I can set USB bandwidth usage limits on a particular USB port/device that will allow me to cap max usage to say 50Mbps or 100Mbps? I am looking for some kind of QoS setting for USB devices that will prevent the device from gobbling up more than the specified amount of bandwidth. % or had Mbps limits will both work.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer".
