    Hi,

    I've gone pretty thoroughly over this idea of setting up a wireless network
    for a hotel. I know how I will secure it, how to set it up, I don't really
    know what to charge,, we're talking about small hotels in small towns in
    states of low population where this kind of service is not expected and
    probably not provided by anyone in town 'yet'.

    My main question for this forum is this; who knows of an effective bandwidth
    throttling solution? One that perhaps has already been used for this same
    purpose, I can't have the less moderate users stealing all of my bandwidth
    from those who will use it more moderately. I'm using mandrake but without
    preference, LNP might be my solution (?) I understand that Mandrake has
    built in potential to throttle but with a buffer. It's too bad cable
    providers don't offer ATM so that I could just have a VC for each user, that
    would do it for sure..

    Mandrake help pages talk about tcp window manipulation as a solution to
    inbound traffic management only to say that nothing of the sort had yet been
    implemented. Any news on this?

  2. Couldn't you use the 'LIMIT' facility of iptables? Just have a look
    into the manual.

    Something they know absolutley nothing about, it appears. Maybe they should
    follow their own advice and see the man page before posting such drivel.
