I second this! You can set it up currently through the QoS classification page, but it would be nice if you could just enter a MAC or IP, and it would throttle all connections from that client to the entered amount. Mabie have a option where all un-added IP's/MACs limit to a speed, and manually added MACs/IP's can have set speeds?
This is added by Toastman, who makes his own builds. Ive compiled fromt he GIT and his builds have this feature, but as of this post, they are not working correctly through the GUI, so will have to wait until that 'git's (lol, humor) fixed out.
I second that motion! I've been trying to figure out the best way to split bandwidth with the tools given and it seems comparatively difficult to the below-listed link. In fact, given that the current QoS config doesn't really allow you to manipulate bandwidth without modifiying their position in the queue, I definitely see this as a more-than-worthy addition. If someone could point me in the right direction on potentially patching this myself I would really like to figure out how - and or doing this manually through the CLI.
toastman has fixed the bug with the bandwidth limiter. To use this, just compile from the GIT using toastman's tree. Im using it on my asus RT-N16 without a problem.
EDIT: If you want, I can build you a build with it (if you need k26, all I have downloaded atm), just tell me if you need R1 or R2, and what build. (VPN last time I checked didn't work when compiling, because the firmware image was to big… need to figure out how to change the max file size limit in the make file, because the file was only 6.7MB)
i have a wl500gpv2 with the vpn k26 and it's amaizing. i'd love to have this feature also installed. although i don't know how to compile if you could give me some info i'd give a try to have a complete firmware. ddggttff3, you think that the image file will be too big for my router? :S thank you guys keep up th egreat work
nick, last time I tried to compile a VPN build with the limiter, it was unable to compile because the firmware image was "too big" at 6.5ish MBps…. may have been fixed tho (il try buildn 1 now and see how it goes), and your router has a 8MB flash chip, so you should be fine.
OK, here you go. Should work, this is the VPN + Extras R1 k2.6 build. Hope it works for you! and like teddy_b says, if it bricks not my fault, yada yada yada.

ddggttff3 you are the man!! thank you very much. downloaded the firmware you cooked and installed. everything went sweet. now it's a complete firmware with everything on it. tested the bandwidth limit with ip and works like a charm! thank you again man! hope it will not be a problem for you to upgrade it every time teddy upgrades his one. or at least learn me so i can do since i'm noob with editing!. thanks again! cheers!
No prob man, and my build is just a modified version of toastman builds, with minor changes for my likings. Here's his thread on his builds.
