Split DSL bandwidth between VPN and non-VPN users

I have a DSL connection with 2Mbits bandwidth. I want to split the bandwith at the router so that users connecting through VPN get 1.5Mbits where as all the non-VPN users get the rest.

How can i achieve this?

Hi shaikh1024

You need to look at the QoS settings for your router - can you tell me what you are using.  Quality of Service (QoS) gives users the full control over which type of outgoing data traffic given priority by the router, ensuring important data like customer information, or management information move through the device at lightning speed, even under heavy load. The transmission speed can be throttled both inbound and outbound data passed through the router to ensure users not to saturate uploading bandwidth, or office browsing not bring client web serving to a halt. In addition, the priority type of upload data can be changed in order to let the router sort out the actual speeds

Another route is to use a dedicated network applicance, that incorportes dedicated VPN as well as QoS. Cisco is good but very expensive.  Have a look at the Billion BiGuard range - these are very simple to set up and work very well plus will save you £££££s compared to the Cisco.  They also support dual b/band lines (should you feel so inclined) with auto fallover etc.  I've used the BiGuard30 and it's really very good.
