Unhappy Hi Please help if you can

Hi! This is my first time posting and not sure what I am doing or where this should go.

My problem is this;

My internet is with talk talk using there router. How ever It is shared between 2 xbox's and 2 pc's. I am after a router that can limit access to certain pc's/ xbox not totaly but limiting the volume they can use. As I have 2 sons one pays half and uses the ebox and one that thinks he has a god given right to use as much as he likes.

I was told that one with something relating to mack addresses to limit uses would be better

If the avise can not be simplified I apreciate that and I have a friend who may be able to sort it out once I have the infomation.

Thank you in advance

Derick

Perhaps a good hand paddle made from wood would allow him to control the volume ?

I'll offer something up in case the OP comes back for help: The Linksys WRT54G and WRT54Gc have controllable access. How that is configured and how usable it is in your situation, I don't know. There is also third-party software available for a multiutude of routers that offer access control. Gargoyle is one such software, using the Linux operating system.

I would do a little more searching or contact your knowledgeable friend as he may be able to locate the kind of software you need to accomplish your intents.

The other thing you could do is chuck up a 2' fluted pattern bit and run a dado through the connection port of the gaming systems.....just kidding on that . Good luck with your sons and their internet use. The youngins' have a different outlook on connectivity (I have twin techies over here).
