Bandwidth Limit for the Hosts on the Network !!
 
I Own a netcafe and I want to limit the netspeed for some of the users on the network because some of them maybe use torrent or other ways to eat the bandwidth and the net became so slow for other users.

My task is a way to limit the net speed for some users on the network, I tried a mikrotik RouterOS but it look like a miss to install :( I wanted an easier way than this, I use linux or windows or any OS to make this task done please help me to do it !!

It's normal PC with 2 or more LAN Cards. I am managing 4 cybercafes. Each cybercafe is having atleast 15 PCs. All of them are having P4 2Ghz with 1 GB RAM and minimum 80 GB HDD as per their requirement. This server can handle more then 30 PCs internet traffic without any problem
