LXer: Tasty Tomato firmware for routers

Published at LXer:

Breathe new functionality into your router with Tomato third-party firmware for popular models of Broadcom-based routers, including popular models manufactured by Linksys. Most consumers and users don't know the code for Linksys firmware is entirely open source and based on Linux. That allows developers to create customized firmware that extends the functionality of the router through a plethora of new features. Tomato provides a robust set of advanced features that outperform the default Linksys firmware, and rival other open source firmware such as DD-WRT in terms of functionality. Many different routers support Tomato, including models from Asus, Buffalo, and Linksys; a full compatibility listing can be found on Wikipedia or in the developer FAQ.

QoS Information About Tasty Tomato

Hello anyone who may know the answer to this: with the tasty tomato firmware on a capable router (which I am not yet in possession of, thus I want to know the answer before wasting my money), is it possible to use the QoS functions to allow an actual amount of bandwidth for each device attatched to the router?
I say actual amount as its no use to me if it only prioritises - I live in a house with two friends and we're all always complaining about other people using all the bandwidth with torrents and xbox live and so I want to be able to give a third each of the bandwidth to each attached device without incurring the cost of a router which comes with this function (e.g. the Belklin N1 vision).
Thanks a lot if anyone can help.
