Hi,

I would like to establish a function on my router where it will gives at least 1GB of usage for users.

Most of the time our usage when it comes at the end of the month, the plan always go over the limit and so i am deciding to give at least 1gb of usage for staff/user.

How do i do that?

Thanks

traffic throttling may be specific to the product you are using - what is the targeted router? e.g. TP-LINK wireless router, Netgear Wireless Router or even Cisco Router

Sure then you can check out the link I last posted in TP Link Wireless router. But note the router itself coming to traffic shaping (which is likely what they can only do minimally), is looking at bandwidth, they cannot restrict based on data and likewise, they are ignorant of the bandwidth you have overall in that wire you plan subscription.

Most expensive devices will let you setup tier-ed filters which you can class bandwidth into different categories and allocate bandwidth on each level in the tier. For traffic control, you need to understand (and good in long run) why the bandwidth is always taken up by the users/servers and the application  they are using. That is solving the root cause as I think limiting is not going to be very effective and can have side effect too where most will felt the slowness though they will still be able to get the data they need but slower. Probably the real streaming will "retired" due to the slowness but it does not stop them.

Ok thanks,

One question...where is that post you last posted? please can you send me the URL?

Second question...which devices are you referring to? please can you give me names so i can dig into them if you are saying that TP Link Wireless is limited at some points (cant or can not class bandwidth into different categories and allocate bandwidth on each lever in the tier)

Looking forward to your response.

Thanks Breadtan,

I have a Kasda modem and i managed to set the Bandwidth using the Qos (Quality of Service). I did not know the purpose of the QoS until i read your post.
Its very helpful.
The settings inside the Kasda modem is different but i will have to compare the settings to the TP Link one (egress and igress).
Thanks
