Model: Archer AX1500  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.0 Build 20210420 Rel. 39971(4555)

Bandwidth Control for Guest Network on my wifi router is grayed out, how to enable this? Most of the times the option isn't there. I have tried logging in from different browsers, using incognito/private mode but issue persists. Thanks!

Hello, the Archer AX10/AX1500 doesn't support Bandwidth Control either for the main network or guest network, it only supports QoS, you can confirm if QoS can meet your requirement:

Regarding why you can search this option on the router web GUI, the web GUI may not update accordingly to the specific firmware. We will remind R & D to update that in future versions.


Sorry that we don't know much about the hardware and firmware limitations, so we will not know if the AX10/AX1500 hardware will support bandwidth control actually. If you do need this feature, you need to find one that already supports it.

Thank you for the clarification. I have checked QoS but unfortunately it doesn't meet my requirements. Bandwidth Control for specific SSIDs or specific devices is what I am looking for, hopefully this gets enabled or included in future firmware releases.

I also use this router and Bandwidth Control would be a very much welcome functionality. QoS doesn't cut it as it is a global feature.
