Bandwith restrictions on IP addresses?

I'm hoping some of you out there may be able to help me.
Is there anyway to restrict the bandwith for certain IP addresses on a LAN?
We use a router to access the internet and some computers hog the bandwith. Is there anyway I can restrict particular IP addresses etc.?
Cheers

  1. A few routers can do this -- you'd have to look into the details of your particular router's feature set, as well as potential third-party firmware options for your router.

    Or you could deploy another router or a PC-based software router to do this. There are even some add-on devices that can do this (but I haven't looked into them).

    Here's a link with some options for routers.
