A novel system for a network of computers to improve quality of services using a combination of a bandwidth mangement tool in a firewall. The present system includes, among other elements, a plurality of computers, which are each coupled to each other to form an internal network of computers (e.g., local area network or LAN). The system also includes a server, which has a memory sufficient to store a firewall program. The server is coupled to at least one of the plurality of computers, where the server is also coupled to an outgoing line to a wide area network of computers, which can be, for example, the Intenet. A bandwidth management tool is coupled to or stored in the server, where the bandwidth management tool is capable of monitoring incoming and outgoing information to and from the server.
