Bright Box: "bandwidth control" not workng


[link to this post]
 
Hey guys.

I tried setting up, and applying, the "bandwidth control" feature, but this doesn't seem to affect the wireless AT ALL. My younger sibling uploads LOTS of photos to facebook, and I'd like to limit them to 1/2 the total bandwidth (considering they upload FULL RES jpegs, and don't even resize them, haha). Has anyone had success with this feature?

Thank you smile

Dunno anything about this but from just reading, it limits only the speed, not the quantity, across the WLAN.

Just assuming you are using Wireless G and it uses effectively half speed each way, 1/2 its total bandwidth would be 1/2 * 1/2 * 54 Mbps = 13.5 Mbps.

But the Up bandwidth over the BB is only about 1 Mbps, so limiting the wireless bandwidth would have no effect on it.

Or did you mean you limited the WLAN Up bandwidth to about 0.5 Mbps? Won't that affect all users? What figure did you actually enter?

I want it to do what it implies, and what can be the only useful task of it - to prevent ADSL bandwidth hogging.

Thank you smile

Duh! Hadn't even noticed the Bytes blush

So, how do you know it's not taking effect? Have you monitored ADSL connection while sibling is uploading?

Hi.

I did an ADSL speed test over WiFi, whilst the bandwidth was set as reduced, but it stayed at full speed... odd.

Looks like you are right; these settings have no effect frown

Don't have any wireless PCs online at the mo', but switched on my Internet Radio. It did not even hiccup even while router was Applying changes to restrict both bandwidths to 1 KBps.

Hi there,

Try setting the QoS Module Function to "Enable" in Advanced Settings after configuring the WLAN Bandwidth - this will limit the bandwidth as configured.

Well, that seems to do something to my Internet Radio, which I presume is trying to d/load at at least 8 KBps.

After setting bandwidth limit to 1 KBps and after about a min delay of enabling QoS it starts stuttering badly and going haywire.

Whereas with a bandwidth limit of 16 KBps, radio plays perfectly.

Not obvious is it?

Thank you my friend. I'll try that. It seems the functionality is there, certainly, but not obvious.
