Anyone using a bandwidth limiter?

I came across this Gargoyle firmware that supposedly allows you to limit data usage per device on your router. I was wondering if anyone's had any experience using this with Exede?

I don't use a limiter/shaper but, I know a lot of people that are big time gamers do use Net Limiter: https://www.netlimiter.com/

Reading about it, it seems it would be fine with Exede. It doesn't require a router at all but, needs .NETFrameworks and VC++. It would need to be installed on each computer a user wanted to limit but, it should work with any modem and/or router.

Many routers have a bandwidth limiting function as part of their QoS function that can be enabled on a per device basis.
