I have a Netgear FVS318N Firewall/Router, GS752TP Switch, and a Netgear WNAP210 AP. After a bit of searching, I have identified a machine that is using the lion's share of bandwidth (youtube).

Is it possible to limit bandwidth rates on a device basis using the hardware I have, or alternatively, for a particular VLAN?

It's in the manual, CLI Manual, starting on page 148:

Bandwidth Profile Commands

security bandwidth profile add

This command configures a new bandwidth profile. After you have issued the security bandwidth profile add command, you enter the security-config [bandwidth-profile] mode, and then you can configure one keyword and associated parameter or associated keyword at a time in the order that you prefer
