QoS can be very complicated and can be a pretty deep rabbit hole; however, there is no reason why one should not be allowed to exceed their bandwidth cap during periods when no one else is fully utilizing theirs. I understand that the QoS functionality of SOHO routers is limited, but perhaps the software suggested in this thread can help you achieve a more efficient and equitable distribution of resources.

Wow high speed internet is expensive there. I have a couple of ideas and suggestions for you. What network equipment do you already have?

At your current speed the best thing to do would just be QOS rules. An even division would be just under 7Mbps for each of you. That can be a little on the low side for torrents. Now if you wanted you could build a torrent box to share and limit it to 10-15 Mbps and then split the rest. 3 Mbps for general browsing, gaming, and streaming TV may be enough.

If you upgrade to the 100 Mbps package then splitting it three ways evenly would be fine. as you would have more bandwidth per person than your do now with all of you. Pfsense and Untangle (paid version) both do it just fine (DD-WRT will as well but I always have issues with it). Some managed switches with port based or IP based rate limiting could do it as well. The only issue I see with either of the solutions is if you have wifi that you all share and/or multiple devices.

The problem comes from how you limit bandwidth. A pfsense box with 1 WAN and 3 LANs could divide the traffic evenly between each NIC port. You would then need to provide your own wifi access points and switches for your wired devices. If your tried to limit based on IP or MAC address then the max speed would be set for that device. So even if you have just over 30 Mbps to use if you set a laptop to be limited to 5 Mbps then that is it's max even if you have no other traffic using your bandwidth.

If you are all willing to chip in on building a pfsense/untangle etc. box and then each of you buy your own switches and and wifi access points then you can pull it off without much trouble.

A managed switch will be around 200+ new and around 100+ used and I'm not sure if you can use port groups to limit bandwidth i.e. ports 1-4 share 30 Mbps, 5-8 share 30 Mbps. More likely it will be port 1 is limited to 2 Mbps and so on. I don't have much experience with it beyond limiting a single port.

I'm building the PC w/ OS. I told my room mates to buy their routers. Get them used 10-30 dollars. My question is now, will a P4 @ 3GHZ / 1GB ram / ATi 9550 128MB be able to run these recommended OS with 4 LAN's (1 in/3 out)?

Also dude, REP+

In reply: My network is currently this maybe you can help me get faster speed if I'm not

P4 w/ 1GB of ram has plenty of power for a home network.

You will need to buy a ethernet card, so the pc has 2 nics, onboard and PCI/PCI-E. You also need a switch.

Your network is going to look like this

Shaw Cable Modem ---> PC --> Switch ---> Wireless Access Point ---> Wireless Devices
Switch also connects to your wireless devices.

You can turn your existing router into a wireless access point. Disable the DHCP on the WD router and give it an address in the same subnet as your PC, (PC is 192.168.1.1, WAP needs to be 192.168.1.2 etc.)

One NIC is connected to your cable modem for internet, your WAN connection. The other NIC connected to the switch is your internal LAN. If you don't want to buy a switch, your WD router can also function as a switch as well.

With this setup, DHCP is handled by the PC. All wireless clients go through your router first then to your PC.

You don't need to tell your friends all to buy their own routers...

Wait, can this all be done and configured so each person connected (say 4/3 people, will get bandwidth spread out evenly ?). My goal is say One person is uploading video to youtube, this means other people can still use internet without it being slowed down because each person connect only has % of the internet. Thus no slow downs no mater what

You may have missed the part where they are dividing the 100 Mbps connection between three people evenly. You couldn't really do that with a single access point or single LAN. I agree though that they don't need to all buy a router. If a roommate wants/needs wireless then yes they would need to buy a wireless AP.



With that setup you have a pfSense box installed behind the modem. It will need atleast 4 NICs ($25 dual port Intels from ebay are my go to). One interface is assigned as the WAN. The other three are assigned as LAN1, LAN2, and LAN3. Use the traffic shaper wizard with single WAN and multi LAN.

Traffic shaper is still technically using QoS rules but I've never seen a SOHO router get close to the control you have from pfSense's shaper. You can setup schedules so late at night the rules drop allowing free flow to any device. Set rules for priority traffic from certain devices.

Watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfXImr5q-sw and the go over the documentation here: http://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Traffic_Shaping_Guide#Single_Wan_multi_Lan. Yes, this can get quite complicated if your ISP has a speedburst setup. You will have to tweak this setup a lot before it will be perfect but it will work.

One of the issues I can see with this setup is all your devices are going to be on different subnets so you will not be able to share content between each other easily. If you have a shared xbox, playstation, etc... then you either decide who's bandwidth it will use or add another NIC and add some more rules.

To pull this off each person will need a switch and/or wireless access point (if they want it). 3 ethernet runs from the pfSense box to each person's equipment. A wireless router could be used instead of a switch and WAP. As mentioned you would need to turn off DHCP and QoS rules on the wireless router.

Your P4 with 1GB of RAM should be fine with this. Intel Server Pro NICs are probably the cheapest option. Try to use only PCI-E adapters if you can. Quad port NICs are going to be expensive so two duals should do it. I think SYBA has a cheap 4 port but it is missing some features and I have no idea how well it works.

This can get vastly more complicated with VPN access, squid caching, FTP access, and server access. As far as I know this is really the only way to divide a connection evenly. Uploading is a little tricky as well when dividing bandwidth. I would recommend a little more RAM if you have it around just for comforts sake. My pfSense build is a Atom D510 with 2 GB of RAM and 30 GB SSD and the only time I have been able to put the slightest amount of stress on it was with jperf experiments.

I've used the setup over at a friends place myself. It works fine for them. They rent out rooms in an apartment/house so they have 2 100 Mbps lines coming in divided out to 8 rooms. Just a single ethernet drop to each one and the residents use whatever network stuff they want to use.

There very well may be an easier way but I don't really know of any. I have the mega build of DD-WRT on my router and it can not do this effectively and I think a lot of traffic would make it crap itself when trying to pull it off. I'm sure there are appliances out there that can do it as well but are going to cost a lot more than this. If anyone knows of a better way hopefully they will speak up. Don't go running off to buy the parts just yet.

See now you failed to mention using ClearOS. It was only mentioned once by XAslanX so I thought you were talking about using pfSense. I read your post and just saw how to set up hardware which wouldn't have actually done anything. See my confusion? Haha

I figured there was a simpler solution for this. The way I laid out the pfSense setup is nearly the only way to do an even split really. The traffic shaper doesn't have a good setup for choosing IP address ranges. The rules hierarchy setup have always caused it to work on the first address range and the other two would ignore the rules. Supposedly the next build will include an option to set the IP ranges up within the traffic shaper forming one rule for all the ranges.

The only issue I can see that might happen is dealing with the DHCP. assignments. Every roommate would have a specified number of addresses in a range. IP addresses would either need to be set manually, set to a static IP, or put on different subnets. As soon as device connects DHCP will assign the first available IP address regardless of whose it is. <-There might be a way around that I don't know so I'll leave to someone else.

ClearOS seems like it may work then. Last time I messed with ClearOS I don't remember it being able to do that on the community addition (it has been awhile). Actually going over ClearOS there is a lot more available now on the free edition. I believe I have found a new weekend project thanks. Learn something new everyday. I:thumb:

UnknownM hopefully this works for you. If not there is always the crazy build out with pfSense that will work. Either way you get to build a router.
