A lot of applications frankly need to have their speeds controlled, or just flat out blocked. I used to use Glasswire, when it was still back in the beta (when the functionalities were free). Now with this, I can do just the same.

Also has a dark theme. I love dark themes.

It has been the best software I tried. It has not given me compatibility problems like others. It can be used as a firewall and the graphics help control traffic better. Very good.

Has a fatal flaw; will block all I/O for over 0.5 seconds once every few minutes. This means any realtime stuff like games, movies, music, will get screwed up. Also causes UI stalls.

Recommend against.

I have bee wondering for YEARS what was causing this and yes, it's DEFINITELY NetLimiter...

This is still one of the best apps out there, but this fatal flaw is unforgivable...

The fact that there has been no update to this app since 2010 isn't promising either...

Will look for an alternative...

I realize this is old, but as it is the first negative that will pop-up with this product, I feel inclined to comment.

The problem you are describing here has not happened to me (yet). It is quite likely the problem was fixed long times ago (as it is 2019, and I'd disregard that review, until further proof).


[Edited by imh1kiko, October 29]

Editing to add that no stalling has still occurred, even under heavy circumstances (CPU, RAM, Disk and network. RAM to the point, where it starts to unload other applications).

And as for that other comment by TrueTenacity about no updates, is also false. This software is getting updates. As of this comment (29/10/2019), the current version is 4.0.52.0

From my point of view, everything is functioning as it should.

These comments should be disregarded.

The comment above is wrong. this issue is still very much present as of 2022

being that its been 10 years, i dont think theyll ever address the issue.

Netlimiter has slowed down my pc a lot and it keeps on crashing, also baiting you into a free trial to buy their trash product, defenitly not recommended to download.

Version 4 Final Release is out now and looks really promising. However, I am no network pro, so I would be interested in comments about this new version.

A very good and functional program, but $30 (USD) seems a little pricey for something that's update about once or twice a year.

    There's no easy way to see and I have found no way to limit bandwidth. this is the core feature of NetLimiter so I cannot consider this as an alternative at all.
