What is the easiest way to limit internet speed in a cisco switch from below 10mb/s?
I have cisco 2940 switches and i want to prevent users from getting a full 10mb.  It seems that 10 is as low as i can set the port speed. There is no lan talk only internet.

you will need to configure QoS  in order to limit the speed of traffic.

here is a link from cisco on setting up QoS.

will this work on a per port basis or per service level. Like i want if i have a 10mb/10mb internet connection and i want to divide that amoungst 5 ports not allowing anyone to get more then 2/2 at any given time.
I didnt think OOS could work on a per port basis.

It looks like you can use class-maps to separate traffic per interface or per VLAN.

Check out this link for the details.
