Bandwidth management

By anthylon ·
Hello there.

Let me explain current situation: I have 50 computers (for gamers) and 30 (internet users). It's Internet Club. I have more than one link (ADSL). All computers (80 PCs) should be able to connect to internet. But those 50 should be also able for playing games online.

Now my question would be:
What kind of machine I need to buy to provide service as I mentioned up? I need to be able:
- Bandwidth monitoring,
- Creating groups of users with different kind of privileges; priorities ?
- Restricting ports, services etc.

What would be best solution?

Number of PCs could rise up to 100.

Thank you.

I would sugguest a sniffer be place a network port some where on your network. Or check your route to see if it is capible of bandwidth management and port restriction.

this could work

Have you looked into something like a Netequalizer? It's an affordable bandwidth shaping option that seems to actually work and could do what you need it to. I've worked with several companies with similarly sized networks that have used it. 80-100 users shouldn't be a problem.
