    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Huh? Rate limiting has nothing to do (AFAIK) with DHCP. See the manpage for the 'tc' (traffic control) program in order to deal with bandwidth allocations. There may be other options, but that is a good place to start.

    The 'tc' traffic control application is part of the basic Linux OS as far as I know. It is usually found in the /sbin directory where system tools that normally only the system administrator runs will be found.
