  hotbig 03:33 14 Jan 2010

i am trying to buy a switch that i can ajust internet speed for each computer---4 computers.

something like this:
com 1 ----2meg max.
com 2 ----half meg max.
com 3 ----3 meg max.
com 4 ----1 meg max.

now i am using orange livebox for all the connection but i want to stop using wireless (baby in house). also i use the livebox internet phone too (free of charge).

any idea which switch/router suite my need?

Not really sure what you are trying to achieve. Why do you want to limit speed to each computer?

Do you want to give preference to gaming/ streaming content on certain pc's as opposed to plain web surfing? Not sure this would actually make much difference, and never heard of such a device.

This cannot be done with a switch.

I don't know any home routers to do this either.

This could be done by making a router yourself with an old PC and a Linux distro - click here
