Limit Bandwidth for R7900


Limit Bandwidth for R7900

I tried to see what I could do with QoS but I actually have no idea. I saw a Dynamic QoS and nowhere to prioritize my computers. Also, I looked at the DD-WRT and it didn't support this model, I believe. Please help. I'm trying to limit the guest internet speed. Currently, the guest network of 2.4GHz has around 60 mbps download speed and I want it to be at 10mbps. Is there any other third-party app?

This is not a supported "feature" on any comsumer based router I am aware of.  QoS doesn't allow you to prioritze based on broadcast, only by device. 


You are going to need a enterprise class wireless solution if you want to limit bandwidth or shape traffic on your various networks.  Meraki, Rukus or Ubiquiti (example).
