Getting a packetshaper for this type of application isn't a great idea; they are way too expensive and worse they are just not good at per-user limiting. They were designed for per-protocol control, and had to scramble rather badly when they realized they missed the boat on what is really needed.

For $4-5K you can get a box than handles just about anything you can throw at it from etinc. We have an R1800G pushing

87Mb/s with over 8000 user controls that runs at about 16% utilization. Sweet.
