    Wich home router supports sharing limits connections?

    Well I want to buy a router to share my 1 mbps cable connection with my sister, so she don't need to put her hands in my pc every time she wants to check her mails. But I don't want that his boyfriend stay all day connected and loose my bandwith. So, wich router can let me to put a limit in the connection? For example 128k for her and the rest for me. I saw one Xircom but it has dual wan connections, and it cost 395 u$s, so I don't need dual wan, just 1 wan with 4 port 100 mbps or 1gbps. Because sometimes I work with another pcs and need to pass a lot of data from one pc to another. I saw the D-link 1gbps router but I don't know if it can let me to limit the connection, so I'm asking for anyone that could let me to do it. Linksys, D-Link, don't care about the brand, the only I care is that works.

    Take an old computer with 2 NIC's and install a Linux firewall/router like IPCop. Then configure it so that your sister's PC is on the " segment" with limited bandwidth.

    Well, I don't want more pcs laying around, so I send an email to linksys. The said the router can make all of the others things, like dhcp, spi firewall, NAT, but not limit the bandwith of the conection. For that I must contact to Cisco, they have this kind of router. Well, try to find a model but it's not very friendly, you must go from one place to another trying to get information. I try in diferrent pages and found a sales of a Linksys BEFSR41 and I ask the seller a question. If this model has what I need, just for asking. Well, he saids that it has QoS services, that let me do it. I think that maybe don't understand my question and try to make it in a diferent way. And he saids that the three function of QoS are: 1) Give priority to the ports most used, like FTP, telnet, http, etc 2) Give priority to the LAN ports (the 4 coonection in the router) and 3) Limit the bandwidth of each LAN ports, like 128 256 512 1m 2m etc. So This is right? In this way can I put one pc in port 1 with 1,5 mb and another pc in port 2 with 512 k? That's right? In the case of yes, that will not limit the internet connecion for that port, but also the network traffic to that pc? For example for transferring files from pc 1 to pc 2.

    The D-Link DGL gaming routers might be able to do what you want.

    Yes I was reading and think that the D-Link 4300 can do it. Also it has 1 gbps, right what i need to get faster transfer of large amount of data between these pcs. I hope with the gamelounge I can configure the bandwidth for each pc.

    I'd love to have that D-Link but my DI-614+ works well enough for me and there are other things like another gig of RAM which my money would be better spent on I guess.
