Limiting Wireless Access

Hello,
I have recently configured Wireless router on the network and would like to give access to everyone. However, I am concerned if the actual bandwidth may get compromised because of the excessive usage if there were any.
Is there any software or something I can do to limit the bandwidth for the wireless access?
And may be block access to torrent etc?
Thanks
Arthur

You may configure your router to deny access to certain applications such as torrent clients. Depending upon the router and its functionality you may be able to prioritize traffic also (thus limiting the access, effectively). Please consult your router manual.

You can additionally configure QOS (Quality of Service) rules to certain IP ranges which would limit the use to a certain percentage of the total bandwidth at certain time frames.

Without knowing exactly which router you have, it's difficult to suggest further options.
