Is there a simple solution to traffic shaping?

What I need is really simple:
  • I need to limit all traffic (64kbps) to a particular IP address (192.168.2.8).
  • I have have already fixed through DHCP.
  • It is in a particular network of IP addresses (192.168.2.0/24).
I have looked online for the answer. All I can find is limit all traffic through a network card (Wondershapper) but that would limit the traffic to the entire network, and how to set up that complex tc thing that is so complex I don't even know where to begin to look for.

Can you help me out?

Thanks, @TechnoJunky but that won't do.

This tells me how to implement Linux as a gateway. I am doing it already, in that same network as well as in others. However, it tells me nothing about how to limit the amount of network speed I allow one or two computers to use while I keep the rest for the remainder machines.

Thanks anyway!

Sorry, I didn't get that out of your question. It sounded like you needed to route traffic and were just mentioning the speed. Not sure how you do that. But I'm pretty sure it's possible with a router, so it should be possible using Linux as a router. I"m sure someone here can help.

I suggest you to create a virtual interface for your specific ip (macvlan). Than you can limit this interface with wondershaper.
