Download restrictions how so Roger? Restricting amount that can be
downloaded by MAC address, protocols/ports that can be used, or websites
that can be visited?

There's a lot of custom firmware for Linksys WRT54G wireless routers
that may do some (or all) of what you wish. Otherwise running an IPCop
box with various addons behind the WAP might also do what you want. If
you provide more information as to the result you want to get it's
likely someone will have done the same thing before.

Yes, but those run the OS that begins with an L, to which the OP has a
pronounced allergy. A loudly and repeatedly pronounced allergy.
