Hi i want to split a broadband connection over 2 houses
The broadband connection is 1mbps, and the house where the router is going to be is going to use LAN network.
The remote house needs to use WLAN.

I want to split the connection up in 256k/768k speeds.

Does anyone know a router/switch that has about 4 LAN points, WLAN and bandwidth management / QOS on it?

unless youre going to spend serious money then there isnt a switch with these type of cababilities! you will need to route it through youre machine first (put in a secon NIC with his lan on) and do it via software rather than hardware..

Bandwidth management will only come with higher range (commercial) routers / switches like cisco stuff.

Best way will be to it via software through youre machine, but then the only problem then is having to have youre pc on for the other house to have network connectivity!

Hope this helps

You could use sygate's home office solution which is a NAT-BASED proxy solution. It allows you to specify the amount of bandwidth your want a particular IP address or subnet to use.
