I have a Cisco 2620 router (connected to a T1). I want to be able to limit the bandwidth useage based on an IP address of a user inside my network. I researched CAR (committed access rate) but found out that it only works with the 7xxx series. Any suggestions?

CAR is an IOS feature available from Cisco for your 2600. I ran it on feature navigator ( and it shows support since 12.0.(1)T. You’ll need to contact your Cisco rep for a software upgrade.

for limiting a user's bandwidth you can use the rate-limit comand.

For limiting by IP..u create a extended access-list say 110

then to your gateway interface you can put rate limit


rate-limit input access-group 110 60000 10000 10000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop

The above ids to limit his substitute ipput with output to limit his output.
