I'm on a router with a couple of other guys. Is it possible to limit how much bandwidth they use?
AFAIK you'll need hardware that's substantially more sophisticated than a standard router.
Although, I'm sure there's a way to setup a linux server to limit bandwidth to certain workstations on the network.
SkyLynx? what? make a linux serv just to "limit bandwith" i dnt know what cheap router u have seen that u cant limit bandwith
Jay05 what router do u have?
This was discussed on Tom's Hardware:
They come to the same conclusion that I do. A stock router does not give you the option of limiting bandwidth by ip. So you can flash modded firmware to a linksys WRT54G or you can setup a very cheap linux server.
OR if you find that they're hogging bandwidth on P2P or torrents, then disable the ports.
on my stock linksys wrt54g i could limit other users bandwith
I'm very surprised by that... how would go about limiting bandwidth to individual users with you out-of-the-box WRT54G?
For that kind of functionality you need to flash to the Alchemy Firmware... AFAIK.
