I have a similar situation, my problem is however that I want to prevent
hosts on my internal network from consuming all of my upload bandwidth
to the internet (dl isn't much of a problem, we have plenty). The only
way to do that, as far as I can see now, is to limit the incoming
traffic per internal host on the router.
