I'm going to set up a new linux router for a company, and have to set up bandwidth throttling.
They have an unlimited ADSL internet connection which will be shared between 2 businesses, one being them.
I will need to set it up so their connection will never be slowed down by the other business.
They will both be connected to the same NIC, but will be on different subnets.
How would I go about doing this?

goes on to reach a tc solution script in two pages
