      Can I limit speed/download usage etc per connected machine?

      Hi all,

      I have the new Black Sky Hub V2 SR102-Z I believe it is (not 100% sure) and I am wondering...

      Can I (and if so, how) limit the amount of 'download' data to each individual machines/connections to the router.

      I have 2 girls and 2 boys who all have their own laptops, I do not wish to limit times as they are grown ups etc but would
      like to limit the amount of data they can download per individual laptop.

      I have been moved over to Sky from O2 and on the O2 router I could only label/name each wifi connection.


      many thanks
      Ash

      Sorry, it cannot be done with the Sky routers, even the SR102.

      ok, thanks isitme
      I thought it would have been a standard feature with all routers over the last few years

      Please tell me (if you know) that it will be possible to assign all laptops and both my boys PS3's to their own IP address?
      Just to make sure they get 100% of the best out of this new Sky Broadband.

      Thanks for you help mate

      You can assign fixed IP addresses to all devices.

      By the way, if you prefer the O2 router there is nothing to stop you using it to connect to Sky broadband.
