    There seem to be a fair few posts on the topic of Access Restrictions so apologies if a similar question has already been asked and my search through all the old posts wasn't thorough enough.

    I would like to set up a filter such that all the computers on the network can only access "normal" internet services (say http, https, pop3 and smtp) when the filter is applied and so that certain computers can't hog the bandwidth by downloading through P2P software. Is there any way the LinkSys WRT54GS can do this? At the moment I just have to block the internet connection of these computers when it runs too slow using their IP addresses which isn't a very satisfactory way of doing things.

    Alternatively, is there any way to restrict bandwidth usage through the router?

    Thanks in advance for any tips you may have,
