Bandwidth management??

    Hello, I am new to wireless networks and am having a lot of fun now that I found this new world of hacks. I think the term hack doesn't really state it. When I load a different OS on my PC I don't call it a hack... Anyway let me get to the point.

    I am running Wifi-Box's Release Version: 2.00.8.1h.wfb on my two WRT54G's. I have 2 routers setup in the gateway mode and am providing internet access to all my guys out in the middle of nowhere Iraq through a satellite connection. I have one box on chan 1 and the other on 10. I started all this hack stuff to increase my power output but I am now starting to think I can do more stuff with it. I usually administer a large network back home in the states with lots of gear but find myself here with just my WRT54G's and about 60 connections (50 of them wireless). I have read that 25 connections per box is a lot and will affect performance but oh well, that's why I'm here trying to make it better. I really need to manage my bandwidth and have seen other threads posted here that elude to the ability to do so (the thread mentioned sveasoft's firmware). Any "how to's" on the subject of bandwidth management would be great. I have little experience with Linux so it would have to be pretty detailed. I am a Microsoft and Novell engineer so I an't new to this stuff.

    Sorry to be so long winded. I have no one here I can talk "tech" to...

    Thanks in advance!

    I guess no one here knows much about this subject... 83 looks but no replys, oh well.

    I started looking on the sveasoft website and they have tons of info on the subject.

    Re: Bandwidth management

    That is because it is one of the functions of their firmware afterall :wink:

    Having read your 1st post repeatedly, I still don't know what you had in mind, but if you want bandwidth management, you must switch to the Sveasoft firmware - the Wifibox firmware doesn't support it.

    the new beta v2.02.8-pptp, have a QoS, and you can limit by application, by port, or by MAC, but its so limited, i think 50 connections its too much for this firmware-
