What are you trying to accomplish by limiting the speed? Might be better ways to do what you want.

ivanwind, it's not illegal.

timepharoah, i'm the parent.

Lady Une, thank you.

You're the parent and paying for the internet but you can't stop your kid from using it?

Nope/10 or you need to re-evaluate your parenting.

I don't want to stop them. I want to limit the bandwidth. That is my fault for not clarifying. My current router is a WRT54GS

if you can get tomato on it you can accomplish it with QoS
Such is your fate.

dd-wrt custom firmware is supported by your router and it's free. I've used it on several months now on my route to limit activity and give your device priority when it comes to bandwidth priority.

My wife in our home is always on youtube and we don't have cable so netflix and hulu takes it's place for our tv watching needs. When on one of these services i used to lag horribly since our internet speeds are not the greatest. It's possible to watch anything at 1080p quality but that pushes our bandwidth to it's limits. by limiting the devices on our network now the quality is around 720p.
.... she can't tell the difference or doesn't care and im able to maintain a very playable ping now. Stays around 30 to 40 instead of the 190 area i was hitting before when she was using something.

Pretty much any decent router can do that. It is called QoS (quality of service). You can usually limit by both host and protocol.
