I need a working open source LAN limiter.

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -

Hi! I started a new internet business within my locality. I connect my neighbours to the internet and they pay me at the end of the month. I realized that some of them carry out heavy downloads therefore adversely affecting the speed for the other clients. Is there an open source LAN limited that I can use to control how much bandwidth each of the clients get? I will appreciate if the limiter is also able to completely disconnect someone when necessary. Give a bit of review please!

Hello Mr. Mathias,

> Traffic ShaperXP is the best net limiting software available for free. It has many features such as speed limiting, port filtering, traffic monitoring, stream statistics etc.

> NetLimiter another great bandwidth shaping software which is a premium tool but has a freeware version.

> NetBalancer is also a paid software but contains a free version.

Hope this helps. Best regards.
