What is Speed Limit/Bandwidth Control?
Speed Limit is a new feature that has been brought to some Archer AX routers, such as Archer AX73 and AX4400. Some TP-Link fellow users may call it Bandwidth Control. Speed Limit gives you the permission to assign a specific download and upload speed for each device that connects to the router, you can then restrict how much of the speed the program or hardware is allowed to use at maximum.
