  1. I could be wrong but your everyday SOHO router will only allow you to prioritize traffic by High, Medium, and Low using QeS settings.

    You might have to shell out some money for a hardware firewall.
    Or if you have an old computer, with two network cards, lying around you could make it a little site project and build a lunix software firewall and enable DHCP which will give you the power you are looking for. Just connect one of your router's LAN port to the Lunix PC and turn off the router's DHCP.
  2. i dont mind spending a few hundred quid...
  3. You could spend about $60 on a WRT54GL and do a firmware patch with either Tomato, DD-WRT, or OpenWRT.

    http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index - I hear QOS doesnt work well, might want to skip over this one.
    http://openwrt.org/ - Lots of great QOS scripts

    So research which firmware is for you, and research QOS scripts. Which will allow you to control bandwidth.

    Good luck!
  4. Thanks very much .. Got a wrt320n...
