    Capping Speeds Per Client on Home Wireless Network.

    Basically, my and my brother are heavy internet users and my mom only uses it a little and only then it only for web browsing and ebay etc.

    I have a 2.2mb connection and want to set it up so that me and my brother get 900k - 1mb each leaving my mom with 200-300k which is more than enough.

    How would I go about doing this though as I have no idea.

    And yes my mom does know we are limiting her internet. :p

    Install netlimiter or something similar on each machine, or swap your router for something that'll do traffic shaping.
    It's 2Mbps of useful throughput though, not 2.2.
