    Is there a way to determine, preferably by IP/Mac, the user that is using the most bandwidth in the environment using the Tomato Router?

    I have a roomate that apparently is a bandwidth hog and eventually I want to QoS is butt to a low priority. Still, I cannot determine this. Looking at the Bandwidth Usage graphs I see some huge spikes here and there, but nothing stating who was using that bandwidth.

    You do not mention if it's connected wirelessly or wired. Anyhow, if it's wireless, I often connect a "free" 1 port router to my tomato router running either openwrt or dd-wrt (eg. f*nera), or any firmware w/ bandwidth monitoring connected to the back of the tomato router, then just look at the specific router to determine how much bandwidth they are using. I'm not sure if the tomato mods can do all what your asking, but more advanced x86 firmware all have this feature. A Tomato Mod do have per ip qos.
