Limiter for Guest WiFi



  • I have a Guest WiFi vlan set up & working.  I'm trying to set up a bandwidth limiter for it so guests can't use all my pipe.  The download limiter is working, the upload limiter is not.  Can someone tell me why?  Here's my configs:

    Firewall rule for Guest (GST) interface:

    Download limiter (works):

    Upload limiter (doesn't work):

    Get rid of the burst until you understand what it does.

    Your comment says 1Mbit, but your limiter is 10Mbit.

    If that rule is on the customer interface, in is upload and out is download.

    There are countless questions asking how to do this.  Do a search.  You probably want a main limiter that gives your guests a pool then child limiters with a mask to evenly distribute the data while letting one user monopolize the entire pool if they're the only one on.

    Done.

    I was tweaking the settings without updating the comment.  You can ignore the comment.

    What do you mean customer interface?  It is a type of LAN interface.  It is a VLAN (1003) of the LAN interface.

    Yes there are.  I have & will continue to search.  Is the main limiter with child limiters required?  I don't understand "a mask to evenly distribute the data".  I won't have problems with a lot of people being on it at one time.  It's for my home network & mainly just to keep the occasional guest from using my primary WiFi so I don't have to give out my WPA2 key & at the same time keep said guest from using up all my WAN pipe.
