Hey, thanks for the quick replies guys, I have a wrt54gs in my closet and a Apple Airport Extreme being in use, hopefully that will work with this open source software, now that I've installed it I have to figure out how to see how other people are connected, and how to identify them, and how to restrict bandwidth to them, any ideas?.

Packet Sniffing software... hmmm, does anyone know of any? like I described before, where you can see who's connected to your network, so you can see how much data their using and restrict them, I'm still experimenting with BitMeter but can't see anyone connected yet...

It seems what you want to do is implement QoS (quality of service). DD-WRT will allow you to do this. I recommend Tomato Firmware (http://www.polarcloud.com/tomato). Its web interface is clean and simple. I'm not sure if the apple airport extreme routers do QoS.

DD-WRT or OpenWRT both support iftop - its my preferred program for doing light monitoring of folks' traffic on my network.
If I see anything that I don't recognize in the list, I know I'm in trouble. It monitors all connections passing through, so I have to determine what's on the wireless and what's on the wired, but it does a decent job of telling me who's using bandwidth and why.
