bandwith limiting

i'm installing a new and small WISP in Mexico for last mile access using WIFI and Motorla Canopy, I receive a wireless link from My ISP with 30 static IPs wich is conected to a managed switch that has CoS enabled. And then each client is conected with a router or gateway. I need to limit bandwidth transparently using either IPs, MAC addresses to my clients, how can i do this?

I really like the ClarkConnect Linux distro for this kind of stuff as it is OpenSource and the community edition is free. I also love OpenSource.

I am not exactly sure how you might set this up but you install it on, and in your case, a pretty strong PC with multiple network cards. It allows direct IP routing, NAT and will do bandwidth limiting via IP or MAC address as I recall. You can even set the time of day, server email (10 users) and add a web server all rolled up into one pretty good package!

also you might look at SMEServer. Does the same stuff just differently. Agian uses all OpenSource tools and is OpenSource.

You can look at a Microtik solution (http://www.mikrotik.com)
Here is a company that can preconfigure one and send it out to you: (http://www.thinix.com) (Called Thinix Access).
