I have one 100mbps internet line in my hotel, I want to distribute internet with hotel users. If all users connect to internet without any bandwidth controller or username password then I am facing problems.
Please suggest me any best software or hardware bandwidth controller with whom I can control bandwidth as username password.

    If you have router with QoS feature you should be able to set e.g. download speed limit (without user name and password just based on IP - you can set ip ranges for guests and set static ip from different range for your devices to be without speed limitation)

    The best way to do this is to use a Mikrotik Hotspot.


    Our company has over 20,000 university students controlled this way.

    ZyXEL N4100 w/printer

    4ipnet makes some nice solutions, too, but they start at just about twice the price of that ZyXEL for a controller, printer and 1 AP.
