hi guys.

a friend of mine is wanting to limit bandwith to one certain WiFi device that connects to his WiFi router\ ..

The device can be assigned a static IP

he has a Netgear dg834gt

is there any way this can be managed by the router somehow ? installing software such as Net Limiter onto the WiFi device isnt an option.

thanks in advance
