Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You would likely want to use Quality of Service (QoS) to acomplish this task. many mid to high end routers have this functionality and will let you limit the bandwidthe used for a type of service (or services) to a specific amount or priority if you wish by a number of factors, one of which is a IP Range.

To accomplish this you will need to ensure that “guests” either plug into specific ports that are configured as Guest ports on the network, and therefore get the guest Ip address ranges, or use some sort of authentication scheme with the firewall/proxy to accomplish this goal.
