My cable is capped and 128kbits/sec up (16KB/sec) so when i download stuff from irc it uploads over 25KB/sec of overhead and that hits the router and completely kills the internet. Is their any free software that can easily and temporarily limit the upstream on my computer?

Get a program called DU Meter. It is a program that monitors your network's traffic and keeps track of it all. You can also control the speeds as well.

Great little program.
