Our office is running into a big problem. We're a small company with roughly 20-30 people. All of the computers are connected to the Internet through our local network. But we noticed that several people are using the Internet far more often then expected. And now it's causing low bandwidth throughout the network. Is there a way for us to control the Internet usage? All of the computers are on Windows 10.

    You did not mention what is your router's make/ model. Modern routers have capability to restrict usage of internet. In a browser, type router's IP (typically it is 192.168.1.1) with correct user/ password. Now access the router's control panel. Click the access restrictions link in the router's control panel menu. (It may vary make/ model etc.). Now check the enable checkbox to activate access restrictions settings. Now type all computers' media access controller address/Mac addresses. Click apply button to save the restriction settings. It is better to reboot the router to take effects. Now click schedule button in the control panel menu and check the boxes next to the days you want restrictions to be activated. Again click apply button again to save the restriction schedule settings.
