with my ipcop firewall hardware apparently failing this isn't a bad time to
address an idea i've been mulling for some time.
later in the year virgin (censoring bastards) will be trebling my speed and i
thought that since i'm happy with my current speed i'd let my house mates
connect wirelessly through the firewall, however i'm keen to ensure that i
still get the full 10mbs i currently get no matter what the others may be
doing and also that no matter what i might do they get some minimum like 2 mbs
so that i don't get frequent complaints :)
i believe that this is called bandwith shaping but i'm not sure what
firewall/router software i should look at for this.
i'm open to suggestions, as far as i can see ipcop only allows to throttle for
certain activity not guarantee bandwith.
