Depends on your network setup and router. SOme gateway/router solutions allow you to set max transfer rates based on MAC.

That would be a manageable switch, and not wireless. A server with ISA would be nice but expensive.

All depends on what you want to spend. There are some cheap wireless routers for about 60USD that can filter and manage traffic well in combination with QOS and a 3rd firmware, mostly Linux based like Tomato.

well i was looking for a software to do this but a hardware bandwidth controller will be much better i guess...

seems like netlimiter has the bandwidth controlling based on diffrent network configurations...though i was looking for a free one :}

Never worked for me, it’s a program that you use on the local machine so users can modify it...

I’m sure QOS will do what you want. Only problem you will have is with encrypted torrent links or when they throw everything over port 80... So let’s hope the “users” don’t know those things ;).
