Model: ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

Hey all, in case anyone is wants to play around with Bandwidth Control.

Use Case:

  • Prioritize your preferred network traffic or VLAN or IP Groups to improve WAN performance.

    • If you have 10Mbps ISP and you do not want this to be fully used by someone watching Full HD stream, you can set up maximum bandwidth that can be used (i.e. 80%) and always leave headroom (in this use case, 2Mbps out of 10Mbps).

Note:

  • This will not fix SLOW network (i.e. if you have slow mobile tethering, it will not make streaming faster).

  • Even if your traffic is prioritized/first-in-line, if you have slow bandwidth, it will still be slow.

 

How To:

  • Part 1 (Trigger):

  1. Transmission > Bandwidth Control > Bandwidth Control [Enable]

  2. Threshold Control [Enable] > Set Percent (Recommended 80% utilization as start, adjust lower/higher as needed)

  3. Apply

  1. Create New Rule >

    • Name - Enter Name

    • Status - Enable

    • Source Type - Network or IP Group (for testing/simulation, choose IP Group then IPGroup_Any)

    • WAN - Select 1, or ALL interfaces (for testing/simulation, select all WAN interfaces)

    • Upstream Bandwidth - Max Allowed Upstream (for testing/simulation, select a much slower speed than your ISP)

    • Downstream Bandwidth - Max Allowed Upstream (for testing/simulation, select a much slower speed than your ISP)

    • Mode - Shared

 

If you would like to see this in action, you can check the configuration/demo at 07:32 Time Stamp.

Hi @Death_Metal 

I appreciate your effort in this guide.

This will work best with the Knowledge Base Omada Gateway QoS DSCP Reference Table.

Wow, that is a great article. Too bad, I have not seen it before I published the video I made related to this. I did cover Gateway QoS but I have not put much focus on it since I am targeting home users and in my opinion, CoS/DSCP will have less impact in a limited number of device installation compared to Bandwidth Control where congestion will be "prevented" as soon as it's reached.

 

I'll put up a link to your knowledgebase on my video description.

Appreciate it. I also pinned your great article for the next few weeks.

Your articles are very informative to the users on the forum. Thanks for your effort.

 

Will always pin the good articles for people to see.
