Router TG582n - Individual devices speed limit

Hi.
Is it possible to set the speed each device can have that is on my network?
Thank you in advance for any advice.
Mally.

You can set a maximum speed for each ethernet port but not for individual wireless devices.
This is done via telnet, I'm not at a technicolor router at present so, sorry, I can't dig out the commands.
What are you hoping to achieve?

Hi and thank you for your information.
I just have really, really slow broadband (100kB/s) because of where I live so I was wanting to limit what the kids can use so it still leaves me a small amount of  bandwidth.

Update:
It's a long shot but IPQOS may help a little. Place the kids PC in a low priority queue and your PC in a high priority queue.
Details here: http://npr.me.uk/ipqos.html
IPQOS mainly works on upstream but may have a small affect on downstream. So don't know how much it will help but with your speed anything is worth trying.
Good luck, let me know if you try this.

Thank you to all for your help.
I'll give IPQOS a go and let you know.
Kind regards.
