Im setting up a test environment at home and I figured now is a good time to take care of the kids bandwidth hogging issues.
Im looking for a router or an application *I do have a server I can config if there is a product* so that I can configure it as to throttle bandwidth by either IP MAC or username.
lets say my IP is 192.168.2.12.. I wouldnt throttle myself but 192.168.2.22 is my Son downstairs who downloads music and videos all day long. I would like to impose a restriction that would only allow him a MAX of 20KB/sec. I would like something that cut and dry.. not like QoS
I am building a smoothwall box and the total parts will run me 150 and that includes shipping. Or if you have another older pc who's O.S. you don't mind wiping you could load smoothwall on that. Their main site is here...
