Possible to limit download/upload speed of wireless users?

    I'm running a Linksys WRT54GS v2.0 wirelss router. Basically I'm wondering if it's possible to limit the download & upload speed of the wireless users on the network. Reason being is that my computer (wired) is used for gaming where as the wireless laptops using the connection do a lot of bit torrent. Bit torrent simply kills the connection and makes even using the internet almost impossible for my computer. Anyways, any help would be appreciated. Thanks. ;)

    Try QoS options.

    Give the MAC addresses of the bit torrent computers lower QoS priority than the mac address of your Gaming machine.

    Dont mess with prioities based on protocols. Use the MAC addreses.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Alright, so I enabled QoS. For Port, I select LAN & wLAN and set my Uplink and Downlink according to speed test results (7000/700). I also checked Optimize for Gaming and added Counterstrike-source (since this is a game I play). Add clients MAC address. I set those up and gave the wireless computer BULK priority and my computer PREMIUM.

    Does this sound about right or anything else I should change? Thanks again for the help!
