If your router supports it (i.e. cisco routers with the latest IOS) you can
do traffic shaping.
Using that you can specify how much bandwidth is available to a segment
coming in from either a lan or wan port.
You can also assign priority groups, which are lists defining preference of
a source / protocol over other sources / protocols.
Other solutions include connecting the two lans with HDSL modems and then
playing with the modem speed, or going for a traffic shaper/bandwidth
manager solution.
By my own experience hardware solutions seem to function better, if you can
justify their cost.

You didn't mention your router but I sense that approach is a bit difficult.

There is a product by that manages bandwidth. I have not used
it but it looks very interesting.
