The "Share Bandwidth Evenly on the LAN" checkbox means that when 
bandwindth is contested, everyone gets an equal share.  The one guy on 
Windows update can not take over the pipe.  Makes a huge difference in 
responsiveness.  It may fix your "the Internet is slow" issue with no 
other changes.

But if you still need to cage the users, you can add a new pipe at low 
bandwidth and stuff them in.
