Great resource:

Linux Advanced Routing & Traffic Control HOWTO

http://lartc.org/lartc.html

As I said, Linux is a powerful tool for network-related stuff. 
The link above is to an extensive HOWTO article about routing and other networking services available in most Linux distributions. 

Here is a nice one that I tried on my own router host.

If you are hosting Internet gateway for some community, put this to the interface from where the traffic returns to their LAN:

sudo tc qdisc add dev eth1 root tbf rate 64kbit latency 50ms burst 128kbit

They’ll love you for it! 🙂
