Yes, but not automatically - the routers will not tell you how much bandwidth 
each connection has (and even less how much is currently unused). I once 
thought about a SLP-based system for announcing the bandwidth between 
networks, because Desktop Sharing has a similar problem: for the optimal 
settings the client needs to know the available bandwidth at startup. But 
unless the routers support this the administrator has to do it manually, 
which isnt a trivial task in larger networks. And I guess there are better 
ways to spend programming time than solving this problem... for example a 
better way for announcing the network shares.
