Hello James Yorath,

Good day!

It's good that you have posted your concern on this site. Regarding limiting the connection speed you can try to follow these steps:

First go to Start and Run> then type "gpedit.msc"> press on "Enter."(Group Policy page will open).>Then go to Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Network>then>QOS Package Scheduler You can now limit outstanding packets or reservable bandwidth>just right click on the options to edit or make changes. If this won't work you can download a speed limiter software.

Good luck!

Hi James Yorath,
 
To limit the speed of a particular computer in your network, You can use a router that has QoS (Quality of Service) capabilities. Routers sold these days are usually capable of this.
 
To name one, the Linksys E4200 is capable of limiting internet speed to a specific device connected to it.
 
With this router, You can specify how much speed he will get or You can set his speed priority within the network.  
 
Here is how the router's setting page looks like:
