I am running Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (09/26/0Cool mini

I have 4 computers wired to the router, and another 4-6 computers connected wirelessly. Is it possible to limit the upload and download speeds of each wireless client? i.e. can I set it so they can only download at a speed somewhat lower than the maximum speed?

Not unless you buy a paid version of dd-wrt.

I wasn't even aware that there were pay versions. I'll look into it; thanks.

The ability to limiit bandwidth to individual users is one of the significant differences between the paid version (sold at the dd-wrt store) and the 'make a donation' version that most of us are using.

Thanks for the quick responses.

I have an Asus WL-520GU and have enabled USB printing by doing some various things and enabling a script when I set up the router with DD-WRT and it works fine, but I think I needed a special firmware version, not sure exactly but it was unique I think. Do the Pay versions of DD-WRT still enable USB printing?

You would be running Newd_mini_Usb.bin on that router. I am not sure how the store works. You are likely running one of the Beta builds. An official SP2 is likely right around the corner. I expect that you can get that when it comes out. But if you need one now, you should contact Brainslayer and see.

ok so does this mean the QOS settings are bogus then in the version I have? (unpaid)

There is a free and VERY effective method to limit bandwidth up or down as well as connections on a client basis (wired or wireless).

Do a google for

#--------------------------------------------
#WRT54 Script Generator
#(C) 2006-2007 Robert "Robson" Mytkowski
#--------------------------------------------

This GUI based program generates the IP Tables scripts which you cut and paste into your firewall scripts window in DD-WRT.

It works GREAT

I'll look into that, thanks. I guess I was thinking of "mac priority" in the qos settings. Not sure exactly what that is, but it looked like it might help something by individual mac settings.

I stopped using the traditional QoS stuff a while ago. The built-in TCP-vegas congestion control workd real nice and I use the IP tables scripts from the generator for specific devices (my VoiP, etc) where priority is needed. I limit bandwidth on several devices as well as control priorities with this tool

Much better solution in my opinion

Did a Google search for the text below and received almost 3000 pages. It is not feasible to check each one of these links for one that has a download link for the WRT54G Script Generator. A direct link to download this script would be helpful.

I think there is a link and useful information in this thread:

I was able to setup some bandwidth limiting rules per IP (i.e. ip 192.168.1.2 can use max of 5kb for upload) using sp1 firmware. Basically I was using WRT54 Script Generator v1.02 by Robert "Robson" Mytkowski, generated scripts by this tool need to be modified as explained in http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=205559&highlight=#205559 and then they can be copied to a router script screen. I haven't tested if this approach works on sp2 yet.
