Is there a broadband router out there that can monitor, report & restrict bandwidth & data usage to individual devices connected to it?

NEEDS to have:

4 ethernet ports
Wireless
As cheap as possible :hihi:

Thanks in advance

Not quite "out of the box", but how about something with DD-WRT flashed on? There's not a lot you can't do with it if you're prepared to invest some time and learning...

I used to do this with a BT business hub (2700 HGV), I could restrict certain computers (belonging to the kids, and the neighbours lol) to set times of the day, and view a usage log per user (sneaky!).

Just so happens I have a spare one... Brand new and boxed

Will need unlocking (So easy to do - I can help with that)

Open to offers...

Do you know what, I never even thought about using a Business Hub.

Thanks for that.
