Pfsense with Access Point
I have this scenario could you help me understand this.
I have an access point with static ip 192.168.1.100
and in Pfsense I configured to limit bandwidth on the limiters tab the Lan net as source with 3Mb Download and 1Mb upload.
I'm just wondering clients that connect to this Access Point will share 3Mb Download and 1Mb upload since it is on the Lan net? or clients connected with this Access Point will still consume 3Mb Download and 1Mb Upload per user?
Please enlighten me with this. I really appreciate who can help me.
By the way, access point was connected to an unmanageable switch which then connected to the pfsense lan.
@yacud Reads as though it depends on how you configure it: https://docs.netgate.com/pfsense/en/latest/trafficshaper/limiters.html
@yacud i'll whip up a test!!!!
so... it's not as simple as I thought; I got ahead of myself.
Setting the mask field to "source address" results in a unique 3x1 queue per source address (later applied in the firewall filter). Leaving that field "none" would result in a single queue that would allow a single user to abuse/hog the full bandwidth availability (3x1).
if your intent is to limit each device on the ap to 3x1 you can work out a schema to ensure those hosts end up with DHCP leases that would match the limiting firewall rule's range of IPs. Or, give them static IPs and add them to an alias.
