    I have an RT-N66U, trying to set bandwidth limits per IP or MAC address.

    All default settings once flashed/NVRAM wiped on flash.

    Set up IP or MAC for filtering, but as soon as I check Bandwidth Limiter for LAN (br0) to enable it...it completely kills any connection to the internet wired or wireless...

    QoS is not turned on.

    Flashed Tomato/AdvancedTomato v132, 136, 138 and 140.

    Same results with all.

    Enabling B/W Limiter immediately kills any access to the internet, wired and wireless.

    Jim, I too am having this issue with Advanced Tomato using/trying multiple versions on both an ASUS RT-N66U and a RT-AC66U. I have a RT-N16 running AT 3.4 140 with no issues.

    Did you figure out a solution?

    I've tried everything and can't figure out why simply checking bandwidth limiter will instantly kills access to the internet connection, both via WiFi or wired. Once I uncheck bandwidth limiter and hit save, I instantly have internet access using WiFi or wired.

    Thank you in advance...JON

    Wow, pushing a year since Jim (Papa Legba) posted this issue and no one besides myself and him has encountered this issue. Any and all help would be appreciated.

    Does /etc/qoslimit get generated?

    AndreDVJ, thank you for your reply... Where would I look to see if /etc/qoslimit gets generated?

    You would normally do it over a telnet or ssh session. You could also do it via the website in the commands section of tools, like cat /etc/qoslimit then execute, or ls -l /etc and then execute. At least I think it's tools and then commands, it's been forever since I used it. Also this is under normal Tomato, no idea if its still in the same spot in AT because I've never installed AT (nor am I likely to ever do so).
