Default How can I limit my guests bandwidth?

Good day everyone,

I have a guest visiting for about a month and I have a very slow internet connection. No matter how many times I tell him to take it easy on the bandwidth he won't.

I have a Dlink DIR 665 router. Is there a way I can limit the bandwidth he has access to?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

I don't see anything in your router. For everyone else, Dlink published an emulator for his router so maybe you can find something I"m missing: D-LINK SYSTEMS, INC. | WIRELESS ROUTER : Login

It's really very hard to know what will work best, but there is plenty of built-in flexibility to try some changes.

I read this several times since you posted it. The more I looked at it the more I wanted to make some snide remark about your guest. The logical answer is to ask one last time just for the record.
Then if still no compliance with your request, cut them off.
In the router setting there is a section where you can allow or deny access using MAC addresses. Find yours and put it in the allow column and deny to anyone else.
