Bandwidth distribution by internal IP?

    Hello everyone,

    I recently installed the Tomato firmware because I've heard the bandwidth monitoring is much more versatile than the firmware I previously used (DD-WRT).

    Anyway, I was wondering if it's possible to have the bandwidth graph for the WAN break down into plots for individual IPs, rather than just showing the upload and download for everyone grouped together.

    I know that in QoS, I can monitor it for upload, but I'm much more interested in monitoring for download. I have a few housemates that like to max out the connection from time to time, and I need to be able to disable them when they go out of control.

    There is an excellent thread about QoS. Amongst things, it explains why you cannot control the download speed per se but rather influence it by controlling how much you upload. I made all my QoS strategy with the help of that thread and it works wonder on my ****ty 5mbits connection.
    Now, re the graph, I don't think it's possible yet to have a graph for each IP. I may be wrong though.

    Oh I know I can't control download speed. I'm more interested at this point in being able to tell visually when the majority of the download bandwidth is being used by a certain IP. I don't care about slowing their speed too much; I just full out disable their connection when they cause everyone elses connection to die and tell them the internet is down ;).

    You could put their MAC/IP in a different QOS Class, and when you see their 'bucket' utilizing all the bandwidth just drop their MAC/IP into the Access Restriction section and bam- they're hosed.

    Sorry for the kind of late reply, but can someone point me to an information page or something about what Victek's mod is exactly and what it offers? I've looked around, but all I can find are posts about people asking where to get it, and a whole bunch of websites that appear to be in Spanish.

    Thanks :p
