Hi,

A while back I had a post about changing my network around. I have purchased a Linksys WRT54GL and put the latest version of the TeddyBear mod of Tomato. Internet is working fine, however I can't configure what I want.

What I would like to do is work out how limit and/or (preferrably) monitor the bandwith per user. It would be best if I can do this on a MAC address basis.

If needed, I am happy to change which mod of Tomato I am using.

Thanks.

Yep only Vicket;s mod/firmware of tomato supports IP/MAC Bandwidth limiting.




Do whatever you want to do man.

I am also wondering do you actually need to restrict per user?

Usually setting up QoS per class (usually port/protocol) gives a better result.

Thanks. I tried Vicet's RAF Tomato mod, however when I went to upgrade the firmware, it came up with "File contains an invalid header
Please wait while the router reboots... "

Any ideas?

I found this:

http://www.gargoyle-router.com

It does EXACTLY what I want to do. Limit each IP address to a set amount of data, resetting on a specific day on the month

I'm a little cautious however as I have never heard of this firmware before.

I just tried the gargoyle firmware and looks very good indeed. Might stick to it actually.

Yeah I liked that, until I clicked on one of the pages my flatmate has been visiting... EEEWWWWW!!!!!

Nah seriously though, it's brilliant. I'm tracking all the data all the flatemates use via static IP's, and at the end of the billing month I'm going to set some caps.

I also like the support forums. They guy who created Gargoyle actually actively posts and acts on bugs.
