How to redistribute net bandwidth

Hello Everybody.

I have a transparent cache installed (Squid) in our job wifi network. I would like to evenly distribute our download bandwidth to the users connected to the lan. For example, if there are 10 users simultaneously browsing the internet the bandwidth should be divided according to the number of users connected.

How can this be done in linux? Are there any utilities anyone is currently using?

Thank you in advanced for all your input.

That should be an option in the squid conf file. You might have to specify the hosts on the network and enable distribution equally.
