You want to start by reading http://www.lartc.org/lartc.html, also search for the "wonder shaper" script. The packages you need are iptables and iproute (and maybe iperf / jperf for testing).

tc - traffic shaper

Some of the newer kernels/distros have tc which is a nice way to control traffic bandwidth for an interface.
