Not necessary to use that many adapters,  It can easily be done on 2,
one for the internet and one for the LAN.

Linux can run multiple IPs on a single adapter by using aliases in the
config, and then using the traffic shaper utils you can set bandwidth
for each.
The only real problem will come in if they decide to snoop and since
with this method they would all be on the same physical network they
might find the other machines.



Actually, if he hooks the four tennents and the router to a five port switch, the tennents won't be able to sniff anything but the broadcast packets.



Right, but if they know they were on the same physical network they might snoop/play with configs/change IPs, etc. That was my only reason for making this comment.

However with careful setup of iptables the MAC address would have to match IP so that would not likely be an issue.
