Reduce bandwidth

Simple question. I have a lede router used as wifi repeater, it is connected to my fibre box.
I want to reduce the maximum bandwidth of the created access point to something tiny like 1kbps or less. How can this be done?

Install SQM may help. Set the maximum download and upload speed.

The netem (NETwork EMulator) program is designed to let you manage/change bandwidth, delay, and packet loss through a device.

Although I have never tried it, there's a kmod-netem package for LEDE. There's brief documentation at the OpenWrt wiki at That points to documentation on the Linux Foundation wiki at

Before you spend a lot of time on this, you should probably search for references to "netem" on the LEDE forums and OpenWrt forums to see if others are succeeding with it.
