shonen Posted April 14, 2009 Share Posted April 14, 2009 I received an email from a friend of mine today who has had enough of his two son's having domestic spat's over the amount of bandwidth they each consume at home. In his email he made a point of specifying the following feature's. 1. Allocate download limits per machine. 2. Restrict download speeds per machine. 3. Create access control to internet, days/times/hours per machine. In a home environment I personally don't see the point of restricting download speeds per machine and scheduled time's for internet connections. The way I see it is he would get the results he requires by implementing just the download limits per machine. I made mention of this in my reply and am waiting on clarification to weather or not all the features are necessary. In a nut shell I am asking for advice as to what vendor equipment could be used and if there are any modd's or such to do this to reach a desired outcome. I did briefly mention that smoothwall could be used but I will have to take a look at the QoS options that are available seeing as I can't exactly remember what features are provided. Also seeing as this person is not exactly an avid techno nut, something with an easily configured web interface or such would be the way to go. I will more than likely be setting this up but I do not wish to turn into that "GUY" if you know what I mean. Thanks in advance for the help fellas, its much appreciated Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
