Managing Bandwidth over multiple connection types

I need to know if there is a good way to manage bandwidth by ip address or mac address. I know I can use virtual lans on a managed switch but I fear I may still have issues with that. We are going to be putting a wireless / wired system into 60 apartments. The best solution would be in my opinion to limit bandwidth per device one way or another. The wireless is my primary concern because the wireless itself has the 54 meg transfer rate holding it back which dictates how many access points i need in the first place. Any ideas here on the best way to do this?

Your best bet is to get a gateway device that will handle/throttle this traffic for you instead of having to manually run NAC (Network Access Control).

Nomadix offers a great solution:

Netsight from Enterasys is another one:

I have personally used Nomadix and it is a great product.
I am doing a Proof of Concept for Netsight but on an enterprise level, not necessarily for public consumption. It could be used for this purpose and I have seen it first hand, but it all depends on your budget.
