Currently there is no bandwidth control in Orbi. I hope it will be coming soon, I think it's a needed feature.

On the other hand you can do the following to limit the kids from using the bandwidth:

  1. Shut down the 5 GHz band for the Guest network and just keep the 2.4 GHz for the "guests"!
  2. Block some download services like ftp, but -in Orbi Home- this will affect all devices not only those attached to Guest network only, but is possibel in Orbi Pro
  3. Block certain sites like Netflix, and other video streaming services, but -in Orbi Home- this will affect all devices not only those attached to Guest network only, but is possibel in Orbi Pro
