The need is based on whether you "really need" the ability to rate limit or the QoS available in your DLink DSL router are enough.
Only you can answer this.  If it is not enough, a device that can do this has to be bought either to replace the Dlink you currently have or one that will be sitting behind the DSL router and in front of your LAN devices.
internet <=> Dlink<=>Device with enhanced traffic shapping <=> LAN Switch

You can build your own using linux and iptables.

You can use Monitoring tool to monitor your bandwidth.

SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager – Bandwidth limiter and traffic shaper for Windows.This is paid software.

Firstly you can try with this after that you can buy this

that is good but I was looking on my DSL Router
I am unfamiliar with the router you have.
One thing you could do is to use QoS policy to prioritize traffic.  You may have an option to prioritize based on the MAC address.
xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx high
yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy low

This way when both systems try to access the net, the router will first handle the packets from xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx.

A more advanced router/firewall is needed if you want to use rate limiting traffic shapping. i.e. juniper's SSG5, cisco ASA, sonicwall, etc.

check whether the QoS has an option to specify the rate on the LAN ports.
I.e. port1 throughput 100MB/1000GB port2 throughput 512Kb, etc.
