Limiting Upstream Bandwidth - Not Working

    I'm trying to limit the upload speed of the router, so that noone on the network can upload faster than 20Kbps.

    I've set up the router as shown by the screenshot below, but I can upload from my PC well over 30Kbps.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  2. YOU CAN TO DO IT WITH BANBWIDTH MANAGER.
    IT IS A DEMO VERSION FOR THIRTY DAYS

    OTHER FORM IS FOR IPTABLES IN LINUX

    THANKYOU CARLOS

    Is there no way to limit the upload speed in the router then?

    What happens if you enable WMM which is shown on the bottom of your screenshot? I think that controls wireless QoS so it might help you out.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    I have the v5 so I assume that anything even vaguely related to a 3rd party firmware and/or linux is out, sadly.

    Enabling WMM didn't see to affect it either.

    Hey ho - looks like there's no way for me to do it then, but I'm genuinely intreigued as to what the upstream bandwidth limitation bit is all about on the router.

    I think, though I'm no QoS expert, that the "upstream bandwidth" is just telling the router how much bandwidth there is to play with, so it can cap other applications when high priority packets start getting sent. Otherwise, the router really has no way of knowing when to throttle back applications.

    You MAY be able to trade in your V5 for an older model, if you are truly interested in third party firmware. I've seen reports of Linksys doing this for the cost of shipping. If you are interested, call Linksys and talk to a customer rep.
