    I have two problem users on my network using bittorrent, which in turn slows everyone else down even with qos setting on low for those users, it also disconnects my pppoe every 20mins or so.

    eg; if the router is set to a max of 4096 connections globally, the users use 4096, which in turn leaves nothing for anything else, qos just seems limits the bandwidth the user is using on the connections, but it doesnt seem to kill off the connections to allow free connections for other users to even view web pages

    What I would like to do is limit the two users to a max of 120 open ports at a time.

    Could anyone give me simple direction to solving this problem? Step by step would be preferred.

    I'll flash my router to whatever firmware is required to do so if it is even possible.

    on top of that, if possible i would also like to limit the users to a maximum incoming and outgoing bandwidth
