Equal Bandwidth Internet Sharing

I am currently running ICS under windows to share our 1mb cable internet connection to 4 other computers, and I have some moans! I intend to convert the system to a linux box over the xmas period and was wondering if there is a way of making sure that no one user is allowed to pull more than 250kb/s at a time?

I ask this because when a few people on the network get kazaa running, there is very (and I mean VERY!) little bandwidth available for me making work on my remote webserver extremely tedious. If everyone was limited to 250k each we would each be able to fulfill our web needs.

Any Ideas?

Read the old threads in the fourm about traffic shaping.

You can set bandwidth limits in the kazaa settings, kazaa filling your upload bandwidth is probably the biggest part of the problem
