    Hey folks,

    I am absolutely new in this forum. However, I read through many postings and articles about the Linksys router and 3rd party firmwares. But I'm still not sure which 3rd party firmware to use.

    Today I ordered a WRT54GL at Amazon (Germany).

    I share my internet connection with 16 other people. Most are connected via LAN and 5 via WLAN. These people use the internet very excessively and therefore I want to place restrictions.

    It should be possible to exclude a few people from the network by the mac-adress. Maybe there is a FW with the opportunity of a whitelist?
    Furthermore, would it be great to allocate certain connection speeds to singel mac-adresses. Or maybe there is also a FW which allows to allocate certain volume of data traffic to users?

    Last but not least should it be possible to stop filesharing with Bittorrent and Emule.

    Yesterday I had a look on the Thibor FW. I think it would be sufficent for my demands but maybe there is a FW that suits better.

    Thanks a lot for your answers,
    Kind regards
