A little more info would be helpful here...

Ok, how many users are on your network.

Where do you want to control the bandwidth, out to the internet?

Do you have sole control over this network, and are you able to put a box in line with your default gateway?

What type of equipment do you have to work with?

Are you looking to build something, or are you looking for someone to say "go here and download this magical utility"?
