Seeking a router that features download/bandwidth limitations

  1. Hey everyone. I'm looking for a router that has the feature of limiting bandwidth on the hosts on my network.

    I live with a few roommates and they are always downloading, taking up all the bandwidth we get out of our ISP's monthly allowance. We always go over, and we all end up paying heavy fees.

    Anyone know of good routers that have a feature that enables, say, "20 GB monthly for IP 192.168.x.x" or something like that? I know of routers that have QoS features that limit the download SPEED, but that really doesn't help my issue.

    My router is TP-Link, so enough said lol. There's no features really to control this sort of scenario. I know D-Links are pretty good for controlling bandwidth and limitations.

    Any ideas?

    Best regards
