Hi I would like to know how can i control the bandwidith of a specified user/port. I have D-link DSL-502T Router with a 8 port switch for 6 systems & I'm using 1 Mbps Dataone connection, i would like to limit the bandwidth to a specific system, for eg 64 Kbps to one system & 256 for another system so on.. but from the router itself not through the systems lan card. Is there any router in the maket giving such facility or any other trick/ optional software for router . Waiting for positive reply.

yup. i think u would have to rely on a proxy software to control bandwidth limitation for particular systems.

There are three options:

1. Buy a real router, will cost 30k+, but will give you facilities for setting up bandwidth limit per port or per IP or per MAC. Have used D-Link in past for this.
2. Buy an "upgradable" ;) router. Basically any router that runs Linux/BSD. You can install a firmware that supports additional features. http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php

This firmware supports bandwidth control.

Cost will be approx 4k in this case.

3. Use a PC as a router. You will need a PC with two LAN cards. There are Linux distributions that you need not install and will run directly from CD. Some distributions are specifically created for router.

One such distribution id so small that it runs from a 1.4 MB floppy. This will give you bandwidth control.

and if you do decide to use your pc as router, you can use default windows ICS (Internet connection sharing and a bandwidth limiter software. I've used softperfect bandwidth manager and bandwidth controller 1.07, both work fine .
