Some users on my local network use to download a lot every day, using download accelerators. My network connects to the internet through a cisco 1760. How can I limit their download speed using my cisco router or my dell powerconenct 3024 or any other software.

Saimir. You have the answer right there. I would use the access list with traffic shaping like suggested on

Provide a little bit more info and I could provide a sample config.
