The most effective way to do this if you're using Win2K3 is with ISA Server, which lets you do both firewalling and network speed throttling based on any criterion you choose to throw at it. Symantec 2000 Firewall may also allow for bandwidth throttling, although I have not tested it myself. Many network appliances that do firewalling and sharing also have some form of bandwidth throttling feature.
