I want to limit bandwidth on a specific switchport on the router. How should I go about this? It can also be limited by vlan as I created a special vlan just for this device. Do I use QoS? But I only want it to affect the physical switchport or vlan assigned to that switchport.
You will likely have to do this by Interface (including VLANs), or IP Subnet, so what you desire is feasible.
Do I use QoS?
Not to rate limit, that just prioritizes.
See this thread:
I’m coming from DDWRT and I had an ability to limit the bandwidth only for a whole subnet mask.
My previous setup on DDWRT was limiting the bandwidth for 192.168.1.1/25 and my DHCP pool was 192.168.1.2-192.168.1.126.
The bandwidth limitation for this subnet mask was 16000kbps(DOWN)/3500kbps(UP). My internet connection can go up to 20048kbps download and 4048kbps upload.
I don’t find how to replicate the same thing on LEDE. Can someone help me?
Why I do this?
When someone of my famil…
and this post:
Yes...not sure how successful it would be; but I recall that there's some default rules that rate limit:
Maximum average matching rate; specified as a number, with an optional /second, /minute, /hour or /day suffix. Examples: 3/second, 3/sec or 3/s.
Maximum initial number of packets to match, allowing a short-term average above l…
Hope this helps.
