Home Network + Limit BW


Ok, I have a crazy question that I've been trying to find the answer to... I have a Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router and a 384k cable connection. Sometimes I'll find that someone at my house (usually my brother) is downloading this huge file at 50-60kb/s, which really slows down the speed everyone else can surf. I set the network up awhile ago, and I was wondering if there's some way to set a limit on how much bandwidth each computer can use per second. Is there some program/plugin I could get to accomplish this? Thanks for any suggestions!

That would have to be done at the router level, or you'd have to set each computer individually.

Easiest would be to buy a router with bandwidth limiting built in.

Linksys WRT54G models have free firmware updates that add QoS/Reserved Bandwidth that should let you sort of accomplish this. Check www.linksys.com for the firmware update for your unit and instructions.

This will work if you want to limit the bandwidth by port traffic. For example, Web, FTP, Kazaa, etc. You can go into the "QoS" section and reserve bandwidth for your web surfing. If your brother is downloading stuff via other means (Usenet/Newsgroups, FTP, P2P, etc.) then what I have described will work just fine.

Awesome, thanks! I didn't know about that feature.. I guess I should've read the manual that came with it. I'll have a look at that and see what I can come up with.
