bandwidth sharing / controlling

Hi guys,

I am looking for some advice

a business close to ours is looking to take a chunk our internet and we are happy to facilitate them, they are about 70 metres down the hall,

what do you think is the best way to do it, run a cable down from our router, connect it to a wan router? and then set the bandwidth control and a different vlan on our router or on the WAN router installed for them?

Yes, that sounds like the most efficient manner to implement a solution for them. The other way would be to install a larger router providing two VLANS with security between them. It sounds like that's over kill for this situation.

Hope this helps!
No TG. You are correct. The Two Vlans with ACL between them is ideal and not overkill. As for the larger router, that depends.

You could also use a private vlan setup also, but that would be overkill for this situation.
They will be using your gateway/router, I believe.

You need to run a cable from one of your switches to their switch. They need to be in a different vlan. You can then use bandwidth control mechanism at the switch port OR you can use bandwidth policing at your router for their vlan range.

ACL's need to be there so that they cannot enter your LAN except the router/gateway.
