View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can I control bandwidth usage on home network??

December 5th, 2010, 07:55 PM

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and all was well on my home network until a household member decided to get a laptop and jump on my network. All he does is watch videos on youtube, download crap from P2P sites, and maybe even watch p0rn. Is there something I can use to control this or maybe set my router to give him the minimum resources available? Also, I want to block him from downloading junk from P2P sites or places he might get a virus. I'm on a D-Link DGL 4500 Router.

Please help.....

If you router supports the DD-WRT or Tomato firmwares then install those on it. They are able to implement QoS and netfiltering with ease!
