Hello, I have a situation of room mate bandwidth gluttony. Between the 3 of us we have a monthly bandwidth cap. I am fresh to the Linux scene so I thought this would be a great project and since I'm using Fedora at work I'd like to do it with Fedora.
I'd like to create a router out of Fedora and for cheap.
I need to cap my room mates bandwidth every month.
It must support wifi connections.
I've researched (*cough* Googled) hacked routers using open source firmware but each firmware has big draw backs in my situation. They don't allow traffic to move faster than a few Mbps (problem for gaming and downloading) and bandwidth capping for certain IPs on the network is unavailable. I use a Buffelo WHR-HP-G54.
I'm guessing I'm going to need to get a wifi receiver for the box. Could a WiFi Card work?
What software can use to manage this situation?
