Alright, I need an IT guru.
Moving to a little country house in the boonies, the only internet I can get is ATT DSL 6mb which has a 150gb cap ( geez, I miss my Comcast 50mb with 250gb cap:p ).
Now my brother and his old lady moved in with me. I hold off doing any major downloading until the end of the month so I can make sure I don't go over my cap during the month.
I go to do some downloading and find out I'm 12gb shy of cap because my brother's ol' lady sits on their laptop all day sucking down streaming movies and youtube bronie videos.
If all else fails, I'll shut them out of the network completely and let them bitch.
But ideally, I'd like to find a way to just give them a download cap. Say like 20gb per month, when they hit it they lose access until the new billing cycle. The router does let me schedule shut off of internet access when a specified cap is reached, but that's for ALL computers/devices. It doesn't let me limit ethernet/wireless or devices separately or else I'd have no problem.
I have a Netgear WPN824N wireless router. It doesn't provide me with QoS access and that wouldn't really help anyway. I don't really care how fast or slow they download, only HOW MUCH they download.
Thought about running custom firmware for the router but never did it before and don't want to brick the router/fuck shit up. And not even sure if there's a custom firmware to let me do what I want to do.
So, any advice on how to accomplish a monthly cap on the wireless, either through the router or through third party software?
