Traffic Shaping per Wireless Client?


is it possible to set an upload-/downloadlimit (Traffic Shaping) per wireless client?

We have a guest wlan environment with hotspot voucher with many powerusers, who steal each other the broadband for the internet.

We would like to have an equal distribution.

Our environment has an SG125 as internet gateway-->XG-Firewall-->A55/c Access Points

  • Hi  

    You can create a traffic shaping policy or select one of the pre-defined policies under System Services > Traffic Shaping. Make sure you leave the default setting of Individual. This allows you to set a bandwidth limit for each user.

    You can then apply this policy to a firewall rule. If you have an existing firewall rule for just your Wireless users, you would select the Traffic Shaping policy you created in that rule under Advanced Settings > User Applications > Traffic Shaping Policy and that traffic shaping policy will be applied to each wireless user.
