How to slow / clamp down speed on ONE router out line

I use a Linksys WRT610N Router. I have need to restrict the speed of ONE user (wired) that is connected to the router. Is this possible? If so, how do I accomplish this?

Yes it is - you need to configure Quality of Service and give that users MAC address low priority and also add another to give you high priority.

In your routers setup page go to Advanced > Applications and Gaming > QoS

As the user is wired you can also setup the QoS by which ethernet port they're connected to on the router.

DIRE  Thank you for your suggestions. However, before I attempt to implement them I have a question. I should have specified this in my original question. I wish to clamp the download speed to around 25k or so. In other words, around dialup speed. Is there a way to specify a particular speed for this single line?

Not with the router you have, however giving that pc low priority and other pc's highest will limit their bandwidth.

Also if your router has WMM - WiFi Multi-Media disable this as well.

Hello,

I agree that QoS can be used to do this. You can configure QoS policy with the appropriate traffic shaping. The policy is applied to the interface to which the user is connected. If you want to be consistent, you need to write a policy for all users. How you do this, depends on what this LinkSys platform allows you to do in terms of QoS. I know LinkSys have been purchased by Cisco a while back but I don't think they run Cisco IOS.

Good luck
