Hi all, i am running a wireless lan in my rental property. I have a monthly limit of 25 gig and 3 tenants in total. im wondering if there is software available to cap each IP or user to 5-7 gig per month? obviously the cheaper the better but i dont mind paying a bit more for a user friendly program.

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

Check <a href=”http://www.smoothwall.org/”>this program</a> it allows you to create a firewall from an old PC. The program allows many controls over access, and <i>might</i> have the ability to assign limits to an IP address or MAC address. The Pro version might be worth looking at, as it is more likely to have that kind of capability.
Good Luck
