DD WRT router as guest network with limted bandwidth



  • This is what i done so far.

    1. pfsense running dhcp server from 192.168.1.40-254 also with static ip table.
    2. Assigned DD WRT MAC to receive static ip from pfsense. (192.168.1.7)
    3. connected the pfsense to DD-WRT WAN PORT.
    4. DD-WRT runing dhcp on 192.168.2.1-192.168.2.254.

    modem ---> pfsense ---> switch ---> dd-wrt

    The problem is the limiter rules don't apply on traffic that is on DD-WRT router and passing the limit of 10MB.

    What i basically want to do is DD WRT as separate network and clients on that network wont be able to see or access clients on the main network (pfsense). Also limit the the bandwidth to DD WRT to 10MB download and 1MB upload.

    Well that is not what you did - you just put in dd-wrt as a downstream nat router...

    If you want it as a GUEST network - then use it as just an AP and connect it to another network on pfsense be it another physical interface on pfsense or via a vlan.

    Use one of dd-wrt lan ports to connect it this new guest network, turn off its dhcpd and put its lan IP on whatever guest network you create on pfsense.. Setup the firewall rules to allow this guest to do what you want.

    Does that switch you list do vlans?
