if all you want to do is limit the bandwidth you can use a blunt for method 
and use the 'traffic shaper'.

Otherwise you will need QoS (quality of service) which is (I consider) crypto 
to use but *very* useful.  This will allow you to do high speed downloading 
whilst having flatlow pings......very useful and nice to do behind a shared 
connection especially.

Have a look at the Adv-Routing-HOWTO for a beginneers guide

good luck
