    Isn't the answer specific to each wireless router?

    AFAIK, you would have to try to do it in the router settings. One way would be to block specific sites by a schedule for a specific IP address on your LAN. (Each computer) You could do it by days of the week or time of day, allotting each computer on the wireless LAN a set amount of access hours. I don't know if that would work for bittorrent, if that's what 'BT' in 'BTHome' means.

    Some routers may have some other settings that may work better, but I haven't used any that could 'throttle' download bandwidth. I do have a advanced function in my Netgear router that can control bandwidth priority for some applications:

    QoS is an advanced feature that can be used to priority some internet applications and on-line gaming, and to minimize the impact when the bandwidth is busy.
    If you had control of each computer, you could set the download rate in the BT client. But I don't think a router can do that.

    hi
    thanks for answers..
    bt home router is just regular router like any other routers (it is just name)
    with this router you can not see what is going on on your wireless network
    there is not option for that in settings i have not see any router which can do it anyway what i need

    what i need is program to install and monitor,limit and manage WLAN users on wireless network home..
    example:
    have 3 people wirelessly connected to my router
    192.168.1.201
    192.168.1.202
    192.168.1.203
    how do i monitor them, be able to limit their traffic, etc

    hope this is clear maybe i was not good enough in explaining

    AFAIK there is no software that will allow you to limit bandwidth just monitor.
    Here is another monitor: http://www.hootech.com/NetMeter/
