Limiters incorrect speed???
Hello here is some background my isp is a wisp that uses ubiquitis air fiber for its equipment and it works great I live in a rural farming area and I get 12mbps down and 4mbps up with a really low ping im happy with it but I recently discovered that my firewall/router which is a firebox that I put pfsense on , the limiters are messing up my bandwidth I been using pfsense limiters for years with no problems before i was using a wisp but for some reason I do now. the download limiter seems to work for the most part but when I set a upload limiter it never seems to limit at the correct speed. if i set the limiter to 9000 kbps the client will get a little under 1mbps always a little under 1mbps no matter what i set the limiter to. until i completely turn off the limiter in firewall rules then I get my complete 4mbps for upload. I hope this can be solved I cant imagine going to another firewall/router appliance

If you are setting your upload limiter to 9000 kbps and getting just under 1 mbps it's doing exactly what you set it to do.
WTF is mb? Millibit? Kindly use some meaninful units especially when talking about limiters and speed.
sorry about the confusion. if i set the limiter to 2Mbit/s upload or anything else I get 0.09 Mbit/s Upload but if i take off the limiter in firewall rules i get my full 4 Mbit/s Upload. I suspect something weird is going on here.
