Bandwidth restriction



  • Hello -

    A couple of simple questions,

    If they are already answered please provide me with link.

    I have two LANs with One WAN, Total bandwidth is 4MB, on a pfsense box.
    I want to balance 2MB for each LAN, how to force a rule so each LAN uses can only utilize under 2MB or bandwidth, in other words none of the LAN connections can exceed over 2048 KB.

    Also for Traffic shaping in another scenario if I use the wizard - it ask for connection upload and download , if I have a total of 2 MB up and 6 MB Down, can I use 2MB up and 6 MB down, or do you recommend using a lower up and down numbers.



  • Hi,
    You can add a queue on your two lans interfaces with your bandwith.

    Lan 1 –->QParent = 2MO
    Lan 2 --->QParent = 2MO

    you add also floating rules to use the queue that's all.

    Best regards.
    Myke.



  • thanks for the reply, Do you have steps how to do that?
