I am using DLINK DIR-300 wireless G Router. I want to limit the internet bandwidth of some users based on their MAC address. How is this possible?

If you just want to limit priority, the D-Link DIR-300 supports Quality of Service (QOS) so you could use that to prioritize bandwidth usage. While the info page for the DIR-300 shows a QOS feature (see http://www.dlink.com.ph/products/dlhome.asp?sec=&pid=602) the on-line manual doesn't mention it.  Perhaps it's a feature in an updated Firmware?
Another (and possibly better) option is 3rd party firmare.  For example, it's supported by DD-WRT which has more robust QOS rupport.  See http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Quality_of_Service   Of course, you have to be somewhat more computer saavy to load a 3rd party rom onto your router so this solution may not be for everyone.  
If you want to use a 3rd party firmware, take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WRT54G#Third-party_firmware_projects as this gives several options if the DD-WRT doesn't fit your needs.

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
