Controlling my internet sharing

Hello!

So I'm pretty new here(first post) so don't let the awesome username startle you!

Basically I would want to be able to control the bandwidth of the internet I am sharing to others, if it is possible.
Right now I am sharing my ethernet connection via wifi to my room mate, problem is that I share to much internet to him(50/50) I guess.
Is there a way to limit his connection?

Thanks!

yes, you can accomplish this, by purchasing a small smart switch. like this for example: http://www.tp-link.com/ca/products/d...=TL-SL2210#fea

This way, you can a) create separate VLANs so you are not on the same subnet and b) determine speed of throughput for each port...

There are other options available but from my understanding, generally speaking you may need a bigger switch from more capability and that comes with a bigger price tag though e-bay can be your friend in that department.. :d

Dont get that product linked above

Mikrotik switch is all you need. GIGABIT and Cheap as well $39

http://routerboard.com/RB260GS

if you want to use a router i like the RB951G-2HnD Gigabit and 1000mW wifi Nice little boxes.
Mikrotik and Ubiquiti is pretty much all we use in the WISP industry. I have hundreds out there in the field and almost no failure.

Have you had bad experiences with TP-Link products?
