Look at www.bandwidtharbitrator.com. Linux Bandwidth Arbitrator is software
developed by a guy in the town where I live (Lafayette, CO). He made a 
presentation at a local LUG ~6m ago. He seemed to know what he was doing,
and interested in helping small users. Its not free, but its not expensive,
and you can try it for free. I think his deal is that you pay for the
User Manual.
