Default blacksaibot Posts: 1 Registered: 07-06-2012 0 How do I limit bandwidth on a particul

I want to know how I can manually limit the Kbps for a particular device in the QoS (Quality of Service). I DO NOT want to simply set the priority (low/med/high). I want to "physically" limit a device.

When I select to do it manually (upstream bandwidth) it limits ALL devices and I do not want this.

I want to limit the bandwidth on only one device that is connected (ie an Xbox)

I have a Linksys E4200 V2

I have already tried calling/chatting with Cisco but because my product is over a year old (only 14 miserable months) they want to charge me for tech support!!!

Thanks in advance.

I recommend a chamfer bit and adding a variable speed control if your router doesn't already have one built in on it.

If that doesn't work, you may want to take one more look as this is is a woodworking site.

The OP's confusion is in the plurality of the word "Router," meaning an intelligent network switch... instead of this board's "Router" meaning a powered woodworking tool.

(I'm on a certain Linux distribution's Server Team) He'll figure out when he gets to another Forum that will tell him to get into his router's web setup menu / Applications & Gaming / QoS menu... That he needs to set up parameters for Wired QoS, Ethernet Port Priority & Application Priority... But "I" won't mention that here. That's appropriate for another Forum, such as on the (big hint) Linksys/Cisco Forum, which he can join and post/ask questions to for free...

And hook it inline to his X-Box?

Bahahaha!!! Along the same lines, wouldn't a CNC Router be better suited technically? But I don't know of any that interface to an X-Box. Hmmm... My grandson might know. (LMAO)

Hitachi experimented with wireless router technology... The market just wasn't there. Their consultants and client-base advised them to stay with what they know best- Wired Router Technology.

I like that Mike. Maybe the images should be at the top of the forum.

Is it possible to search for keywords in a post and if internet verbage detected send Mike's pic as an error message?
