Asymmetric speed limit for home devices

Starting with KeeneticOS 3.4, we added asymmetric inbound/outbound speed limitation for registered and unregistered hosts in router network segments.

Update KeeneticOS on your router to version 3.4 or above.

Make sure that the 'Traffic shaper' system component is installed in the router. To do so, click on 'Component options' on the 'General system settings' page in the 'Updates and component options' section.


On KeeneticOS 3.4 and above, in the router's web interface, go to the 'Device lists' page and click on a registered device. In the settings window that appears, enable the 'Speed limit' option and then 'Asymmetric'. In the 'Download' field specify the incoming maximum speed in kbps or Mbps (an integer from 64 to 100000 for kbps and from 1 to 976 for Mbps). In the 'Upload' field, specify the outbound maximum speed.



In our example, for a home network device, we set a limit for incoming traffic of 4 Mbps and outgoing traffic of 100 Mbps.

To check the connection speed, let's measure the speed using Speedtest web service from the device, for which the limit is applied:


Similarly, you can set up asymmetric inbound/outbound speed limits for unregistered hosts.

On the 'Device lists' page click 'Settings for unregistered devices', enable 'Asymmetric' option and in the 'Download' and 'Upload' fields specify maximum speeds for incoming and outgoing traffic accordingly.
