I have created a wireless network for my flatmates.
I want to ensure that each person has a maximum bandwidth available over all their devices.
The only way to do this, is to use the bandwidth limiter, and specify an IP range for a single 'pool' of bandwidth (a line entry in the limits table) - one cannot enter multiple MAC addresses in the text box.
This is fine - but it means that I need to ENSURE that a device always receives the SAME IP allocation - meaning that even if the user chooses 'DHCP with Manual IP address', they will be given the IP that I have allocated (or their connection wont work, I dont care either way).
Am I correct in assuming that in the Static DHCP settings, if I click the "Bound To" checkbox, this is saying that MAC address MAY ONLY EVER have the chosen IP - exactly what I need?
Or is it saying something completely different?
Because I have a suspicion that somehow some devices are changing their IP addresses…
