Limit bandwidth for users

  • For parantalcontrol I hope a option to limit bandwidth per up or macadress.
    Isabel in the same way than the time limitation (for day or hours) like full speed from 16:00 to 18:00 per day, other times limit to 512kb...

  • Also, I would love the ability to rate-limit the guest network.

  • Both H and Matt have great suggestions and this would be a very useful feature for myself as well.

    I'd also like the scheduled times to stop current sessions as well. So when 'quiet time' is entered into, it doesn't matter what they are doing, movie, gaming, whatever it may be, stop any and all traffic to that subset of devices and not wait for a break or idle in the traffic to enforce it.

  • I have a question on placement? My main office is in our basement and I will most likely have the main hub next to my iMac, just curious on where to put the mesh points? I have a main floor and an upstairs I have 4000 square feet, so based off of what the unit says I should be ok, but some brick walls inside of home etc. Also does this unit do dual or Triband? Sorry for all the questions, just picked it up!

  • Would Also Love this... Or limit by Family Profile by time of day

  • Please implement this! It would complete this router! The "gaming" "streaming" settings do not cut it! I'd say sorry for bring back such and old post but I am not because this feature is so needed! Also it would help as I only have so many gigs a month data!

  • I don’t want to revive old threads, but I still can’t find this feature being implemeted. I think it would be great to have this, mainly for guest network. It’s making perfect sense.

  • This would be a huge help for parental controls - it's useful to be able to limit bandwidth on kids portables.


  • Disappointed to see the top Google result for this was just some thread with no promise.

    When I plug in my Ethernet, I get all the bandwidth & all my roommates get 0 WiFi bandwidth (not enough to realistically use it at least). I need to limit my computer's bandwidth usage so I can still plug in Ethernet without completely cutting off the WiFi of everyone else in the house.

  • Im reviving this because im still disappointed of this. I have a 50 dollar router at work that can do this. Still no update dor this feature.

  • @Chris-Bloem There is no ETA for traffic shaping, I will update this thread if this is implemented.

  • @UI-AmpliFi Can you confirm that it's on the roadmap? I think that might satisfy some of your customers.

  • @AJ-Rockwad I cannot at this time.

  • @UI-AmpliFi this is a very useful feature and one that is available with the unifi network system FPS it shouldn’t take a ton of work to port it into amplifi. I use amplifi at home and at my small church (too small for a unifi system to make sense). At home I have an Airbnb and provide a guest network for my renters. Sometimes they overtake my 10 Mbps internet (I live In the country), and traffic shaping would help me even out the availability of internet. At my church I want a guest network so anyone can get on the internet, but I need traffic shaping so that the guests never overwhelm the network and hinder the live stream.

  • @jaworf AmpliFi and UniFi are two very different platform so this feature has to be developed for AmpliFi devices. It is a very useful feature for your scenario. Thanks for the suggestions!

  • @UI-AmpliFi any news on the bandwidth limitation development? I have a really slow connection (12/1) and I really need the possibility to limit the bandwidth on my sons devices to be able to work from home. I have now backed to my old solution with ASUS Ai-mesh and waiting for an update of the AmpliFi firmware.

  • @UI-AmpliFi i would love this feature!

  • @UI-AmpliFi Heya, just joined in with the same request. I'm afraid that "normal", "gaming", and "streaming" options don't cut it for our usage scenario. Especially now that there's four of us in the same apartment with two working from home, and the whole bandwidth gets swallowed when a single (let alone two) PCs or console starts downloading new builds for development or something else. Streaming immediately begins stuttering, even when it's Spotify alone. I figured router that costs this much would be able to prevent this from happening...

    I'd not want to install additional software on my PC, as routers should natively have the capability to set available speeds for each of the devices connected...

    Appreciate your help.
