Limiting upstream/downstream

    Anyone know if it's possible to limit upstream and downstream of a host or ethernet port? I am trying to limit bandwidth for a particular host connected to one of the port on the router. Any help is appreciated.

    would using QoS not do the job enough for you?

    With QoS you can give one port (or application) more or less priviliges to use the available bandwith.

    If i use QoS to limit the Upstream Bandwidth, doesn't that limit all hosts connected to the router? With Ethernet Lan Port priority, I can only set priority and flow control, but not upstream/downstream rate.

    similar to anthonyc, i want to be able to control the real traffic rate up and downstream on a host or lan port basis.

    Is this possible with iptable?

    Below is the reply from Linsys support, look like they are working on it to make the "Incoming Rate Limit" coming out again......
    But why remove from the latest version and add in later, just wait time....

    About the "Upstream bandwidth" in QoS section

    Upstream is the connection going out on the router.
    Limit the outgoing bandwidth for the QoS policies in use, so you can control how much bandwidth a particular application is allowed to use
