How to share limited access with tenants?


Mar 31, 2012
What are your ideas on how to share limited internet access with our tenants?

We've run two 50 foot Ethernet cables to their unit. We're on Comcast Cable internet using a Linksys WRV200 router. Our connection ranges from 10-14Mbps down and 1-2Mbps up. We watch a lot of Netflix on our connection.

I'd LIKE to limit their bandwidth so we can still enjoy Netflix.

They MUST not see our Windows network.

My novice ideas:

- I do have a few Netgear wireless routers laying around. Perhaps I can put those to use?

- My Linksys WRV200 router has a QOS Bandwidth Allocation that appears to allocate bandwidth to a single IP (it also has netmask but I'm not sure how to use it) . I wish I could set it to a range of IPs.

Thanks for any pointers.
